PDSAFE Trial Dissemination Event

You are invited to attend the PDSAFE Trial Dissemination Event

St Mary’s Stadium, Southampton
Thursday 12 October 2017 
09:45 – 16:00 

PDSAFE is a physiotherapist delivered, individually tailored and progressive, home-based programme. It focuses on task orientated movement strategy training, functional lower limb strengthening and balance training over six months. Participants undertake daily, unsupervised home exercises and strategies training supported by technology.

The intervention has been tested in a large multi-centre randomised controlled trial, funded by the National Institute for Health Research Health Technology Assessment (NIHR HTA). The PDSAFE trial is the largest rehabilitation trial looking at reducing falls for people with Parkinson’s; it will yield important knowledge and which will contribute to the production of guidelines for fall management.

The day will examine what the team done, what they found, what the intervention looks like and what the participants thought.
