Fall Prevention Through Exercise

Around a third of all people aged over 65 years fall each year, but falls are not considered a normal part of aging. So why do so many older adults fall? This course will explore the causes of falls and the relationship between falls, ageing and physical inactivity. It outlines the minimum level of exercise required for well-being, explores the guidelines for exercise and considers physical activity as a population strategy.
