With rapidly changing demographics, falling birth rate and increasing life expectancy, we are an ageing population. However, healthy lifespan is not keeping pace with increased longevity and people are living longer but not necessarily in good health.
A significant contributor to ill health in old age is physical frailty and poor musculoskeletal function and health. Osteoarthritis alone affects 6 million people in the UK and the health consequences of low physical activity, in terms of years of life lost, are more significant than those of smoking.
The course is useful for life scientists wanting to progress to a further higher degree or a career in industry in the health and fitness sector. For AHPs the course will advance their understanding of frailty in old age and contribute new approaches to their practice.
