Promoting Fall Prevention Workshops

2019-10-28 13:57:23 | BioPortfolio


Physical Activity (PA) is recognized as the most effective method to prevent falls in the elderly. Yet despite there being a consensus now that Physical Activity (PA) is effective in practice, there remain many obstacles to participation resulting in PA approaches designed to prevent falls actually only benefiting a limited number of elderly subjects.


It's a qualitative study. The target population was people aged 60 and over who had refused to participate in fall prevention workshops.

The study covered three different French departments. A total of 19 semi-structured interviews were conducted over a period of 5 months.

The analysis of reports revealed there were multiple motives for not participating in the balance workshops. The current means of promoting these fall prevention workshops are not adapted. Finally, the social experience provided by the program was identified to be the principal motivator for encouraging the interviewed subjects to participate.
