This workshop will support participants in:

  • identifying factors that contribute to the ageing process and practical strategies to promote healthy ageing, including the implications of physiology, lifestyle, environment and culture in health and ageing
  • exploring allied health professionals’ skills and impact in the maintenance of health and healthy ageing
  • developing inter-professional working strategies in health promotion and meeting the needs of an ageing population

The World Health Organisation (WHO) model of International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) will also be used as a framework for describing and organizing information on functioning and disability in the context of making decisions.

The workshop will adopt an action learning approach where participants will apply the information to develop solutions to real case scenarios and the workplace.
