The Australian Association of Gerontology invites you to an online event to learn more about the falls prevention needs of older people recently hospitalised.
Our guest speaker, Chiara Naseri, will be discussing the latest research on the role of tailored education for falls prevention and recovery of function of older people returning home after hospitalisation. Chiara’s research evaluated a tailored education program for older hospitalised patients (n=390), to maximise health behaviour change and recovery of independence after hospital discharge. The project focussed on improving functional outcomes for older adults following hospital discharge, including strength and balance and avoidance of falls.
- Hear about the experience of older patients recovery six-months after hospitalisation
- Explore and discuss issues around the effect of hospitalisation on older people and their recovery of independence once they return home
- Understand the influence of tailored education and usual care on health behaviour change and fall prevention for older people recently hospitalised
About our speaker:
Chiara is an experienced physiotherapist who recently completed her PhD at Curtin University. She was awarded a scholarship as part of an NHMRC funded project grant in 2016 through the School of Physiotherapy and Exercise Science. Her research focused on falls prevention and was conducted in partnership with an international research team led by Professor Anne-Marie Hill.
ONLINE EVENT INFORMATION
AAG has been successfully running online events for number of years now. However we have noticed recently that increasing numbers of our registrants are experiencing difficulties when trying to join the online event.
In all cases this is as a result of the IT set-up at your end. Healthcare and academic workplaces are introducing increasing levels of security to guard against viruses and data theft. Some of those security measures are disrupting the connection to our Go-to-Training Software. There are also some situations where registrants need to make adjustments to the set-up of their home IT before they can successfully join.
It is therefore vitally important that you test your connection before the day of the event.
We are a small organisation in terms of employed staff and on the day of the event most of our resources are dedicated to delivering the webinar, we cannot therefore promise to be available to help you with connection enquiries either just before or after the event has actually started.

Once you complete the registrations process below you will get two e-mails. One from us confirming registration and the other from GoToTraining (the software that we use for our webinars) from this sender address email@example.com.
Recently Microsoft Outlook has been consigning these important emails to junk or spam. You need this second email in order to participate in the event, it contains the link that you need to join. Please ensure that you retrieve the item from spam/junk and "Report as not junk". Some of you may have to ask your IT departments for help in unblocking this address.
Apologies for this potential inconvenience but we are at the mercy of the IT industry in all this.
