Physical inactivity is associated with decreased functional capacity and poor health outcomes. 'Exercise is a sub-group pf physical activity that is commonly 'not enjoyed', and for many is avoided! Promoting physical activity is a challenge and role of all health professionals. Supporting particpation in structured exercise needed by older people at rsik of fall is an even greater challenege. Research informs us that multi-component exercise programmes are recommended for optimum gains but also that strength and balance 'specificall'y are vital for older people and form the core components of evidenced based exercise programmes to prevent falls (in frailer older people). Research and guidance exist to inform health and exercise professiionals what best practice exercise delivery/services 'should look lik'e. Exercise programmes are required to be of sufficient dose which requires longer-term participation and adherence. This syllabus will review the current evidence for exercise for falls prevention and its essential relationship with behaviour change and motivational strategies to engage people in longer term/life long participation in exercise and physical activity. Delivery methods will incude; interactive lecture presentations and discussion, practical workshops of teaching/instructional skills that form the basis of training approaches in the UK and specialist training/qualifications delivered by Later Life Training across the UK, Europe and beyond.
