Event description

Description

We invite you to come along to take part in a national improvement programme which has been funded until May 2020 by the Active Division of the Scottish Government to promote more physical activity amongst people who are over 65 years of age. The Care about Physical Activity (CAPA) team are holding learning events across Scotland to bring providers together to explore the message of promoting more physical activity, why movement is important, why sedentary behaviour is so bad for you, how to implement small changes using the PDSA improvement approach and develop a plan to promote more movement for staff, families and people experiencing care.

The CAPA team have planned a day that we hope will be interactive and engaging and provide plenty of opportunities to connect with others who are also interested in finding ways of supporting older people experiencing care to move more often.

You will meet with other care professionals and stakeholders on the day with time to consider:

  • movement and physical activity
  • using an improvement approach
  • small changes that make a big difference

Everyone attending the learning event will develop their own improvement plan to take back to their work place and promote movement with the older people they support.
