Physical activity and mental health: Taking a peek underneath the blanket. CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

March 24 @ 12:30 pm
Lecture Theatre 3 (GBLT3), Old Govt Building, Pipitea Campus

The rapidly emerging evidence base linking physical activity to mental health has been accompanied by “blanket” statements of efficacy from advocates. Various policy agencies and funding bodies internationally have subsequently invested resources into physical activity interventions with the intention of positively influencing mental health. Although there are numerous examples of successful intervention, these “blanket” statements fail to recognise the unique mechanistic pathways linking physical activity and mental health. This presentation explores the nuance behind effective physical activity promotion for mental wellbeing.

HSRAANZ Webinar Series – Decision making about polypharmacy: the attitudes and experiences of older adults and their companions

March 31 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Multiple medication use (polypharmacy) is common amongst older adults even though they are less likely to obtain the same benefit from medicines as younger adults and the associated harms of inappropriate polypharmacy are well known. Reducing inappropriate polypharmacy by not starting medicines, tapering or stopping – “deprescribing” – can be safe and beneficial. Deprescribing can be challenging and requires considered communication and a collaborative approach between the clinician and patient. It is important to involve older adults in these discussions but the extent to which a person wants to be involved is likely to be highly individual. Furthermore, there is not much evidence or guidance on how to support older patients in this process.

We explored decision making about polypharmacy with healthy and frail older adults, through discussions about their experiences and attitudes towards making decisions about medicines and their thoughts on deprescribing.
