Guidlines For the promotion of physical activity with older people

E-mail Print

 The exercise sciences have provided us with greater insight into our understanding of the benefits of physical activity for the older person.

Further research highlights increasing evidence of effective interventions. Consequently, there is a need to communicate such additional learning to health professionals and other stakeholders so that this information can be used to underpin future work with evidence based recommendations for practice.

These guidelines have been drafted to assist the work of those in the position to promote physical activity and well being with all older people.

They are not intended to provide exercise recommendations relating to specific diseases and conditions associated with ageing or on exercise prescriptions for individuals. Sources of such recommendations are included in the appendices to this document and included in the revised Active for Later life Resource.

Editor's comments - [  A wealth of new evidence has become available which further strengthens the case for the promotion of physical activity for health with older people. Moreover, recent changes [2007] in health and social care policy have served to highlight the potential of physical activity to contribute towards improvements in independent living, quality of life for older people and the concept of active ageing.  ]  Reference this?Cryer, J.
