Researchers at the NCSEM-EM are holding an event to bring together professionals working with the elderly to showcase methods of assessing the effectiveness of interventions around physical and cognitive wellbeing.
At the NCSEM-EM, world-leading experts are developing or implementing asessements of physical and cognitive wellbeing. Measuring the impact of interventions with the elderly is fundamental, not only to determine whether the intervention has improved physical, cognitive or social wellbeing, but also to capture the wider economic benefit when reporting to key stakeholders and commissioners.
You may be involved in delivering or commissioning projects and strategies such as:
- Instructor-led exercise programmes for the elderly or those living with dementia (eg falls prevention)
- Community-based exercise interventions (eg walking groups)
- Social interaction groups for the elderly (eg coffee mornings, dementia cafe)
The aim of this event is to bring together key local government stakeholders, healthcare professionals (GPs, nurses, physios, midwives), exercise practitioners and others who work with the elderly in the community and showcase some of the methods that can be used to assess the effectiveness of interventions.
