You are invited to attend the launch of the FaME Implementation Toolkit
The toolkit has been developed as part of the PhISICAL research study carried out by the University of Nottingham and funded by the East Midlands CLAHRC.
FaME is an evidence-based strength and balance programme that has been shown to prevent falls and increase physical activity in older adults. It is recommended as part of a comprehensive falls pathway but is not available in many parts of the UK.
The research investigated facilitators and barriers to its implementation and factors affecting fidelity and effectiveness. The toolkit combines study findings with resources such as case studies, a business case, service specification and guide to monitoring and evaluation etc. in order to provide commissioners and providers with an evidence-based resource to commission and deliver the programme.
The session will commence with a Keynote presentation from Professor Dawn Skelton, with guest speakers from across the country. During the event you will hear about the research evidence that has led to the development of the toolkit and hear first-hand about the programme from people who have taken part and benefitted from it. Future research needs in relation to falls prevention, strength and balance exercise and healthy ageing will be explored also.
People with an interest in falls prevention, active ageing and strength and balance exercise are encouraged to attend, including researchers and commissioners and providers of falls prevention and physical activity services.
Registration and a networking lunch will commence at 12.00. The session will begin at 12.45 prompt.
This event is FREE to attend but places are limited so please book soon!
