Sarcopenia affects all of us as we age, leading to a loss of muscle strength and functional ability that can affect our lifestyle and mobility. Recognising the symptoms of Sarcopenia and understanding how to deal with it early on could help to manage frailty in old age that in turn leads to greater risk of falls, decreased mobility, lack of physical strength and increasing dependence on health and social care systems. 

This highly practical one day workshop focuses on what is currently happening in the UK, and is aimed at those working on the front line of advising and treating elderly patients and their clinicians and carers in hospital and care home settings; plus those helping older people living independently in their own homes.  The workshop would be of most benefit to hospital dietitians, community and public health nutritionists, GPs, nurses and care home managers. 

 

Speakers

Professor Alastair Forbes, Clinical Professor in Medicine at the University of East Anglia

Dr Mary Hickson, Honorary Senior Lecturer and Adjunct Professor, Faculty of Medicine at Imperial College London

Dr Christine Baldwin, Lecturer in Nutrition and Dietetics at King's College London
