Healthy Ageing & Frailty Workshop for GPs, Nurses & Allied Health Professionals

October 26 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Dr Chris Bollen and Jane Bollen RN will lead you through a highly interactive workshop where they will:

  • CHALLENGE your assumptions about ageing
  • HELP you work more effectively with older people and
  • ASSIST you in keeping people well at home

Learning Outcomes:

  • Recognise the concept of frailty and its complications
  • Learn to use an evidence-based screening tool to recognise older people with, or at risk of frailty
  • Understand the treatment options/referral pathways for frailty which can assist with reducing further decline and supporting an older person to live at home independently.
  • To share ways of incorporating frailty assessment into everyday encounters in primary care.

The evening includes dinner, starting at 6.00pm with the workshop commencing at 6.30pm and concluding at 9.00pm.

Please register to attend by Monday, 24 October via EventBrite.

This evening is offered for free thanks to the generous sponsorship by BMP Consulting.
