The balance workshop was developed to complement the evidence-based exercise guidelines for improving balance and preventing falls. While the guidelines of Professor Cathie Sherrington and colleagues are widely available, implementing these guidelines in clinical practice continues to be a major clinical challenge. Therapists have asked the StrokeEd collaboration for advice about how to implement effective balance strategies that are safe, challenging and of sufficiently high dosage. This workshop aims to assist clinicians to develop evidence-based solutions for people with balance difficulties. The workshop uses lectures, practical sessions, video analysis and clinical sessions with patients in order to provide clinicians with many strategies for effective balance training with people of differing levels of disability.

Learning outcomes:

Learning objectives At the completion of the workshop participants should be able to: 1. Define balance, postural adjustments, kinematics, kinetics, task specificity 2. Discuss research about the characteristics of postural adjustments i.e. timing, task specificity 3. Describe changes that occur to postural adjustments with aging and neuropathology 4. Describe the assessment and analysis of balance impairment 5. Describe the risk factors and circumstances of falls 6. Discuss the evidence for exercise interventions to improve balance and reduce falls 7. Describe how to set up effective balance training for people with impaired balance
