Event description

Description

PDSAFE is a physiotherapist delivered, individually tailored and progressive, home-based programme. It focuses on task orientated movement strategy training, functional lower limb strengthening and balance training over six months. Participants undertake daily, unsupervised home exercises and strategies training supported by technology.

The intervention has been tested in a large multi-centre randomised controlled trial, funded by the National Institute for Health Research Health Technology Assessment (NIHR HTA). The PDSAFE trial is the largest rehabilitation trial looking at reducing falls for people with Parkinson’s; it will yield important knowledge and which will contribute to the production of guidelines for fall management.

Registration is due to open at 10am with the day closing at 4pm.
