Description

This course summarizes accurate scientific information to serve as recommendations for policies and strategies that can increase the physical activity levels of older adults in the State of Michigan—and elsewhere in the United States. Performing regular physical activity is a valuable health practice for older adults. It can prevent or minimize chronic health problems and increase functional ability. Exercise programs, including stretching, range of motion, aerobic activity, and resistance exercises, can markedly improve endurance, strength, balance, and flexibility, all of which progressively decline with aging, especially in those who are physically inactive.

Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:
● Identify the exercise recommendations for older adults
● List the policy recommendations for health professionals
● Identify the policy recommendations for communities
● List the factors for prescribing exercise, including frequency, intensity and duration
