Aging is an important stage in the life cycle, a wish that many people do not understand. Growing old can be unpleasant and bring new problems, but there are ways to age well. This is what Guy Hajj Boutros, lecturer in the Department of Physical Activity Sciences at the Université du Québec à Montréal, clinical research coordinator at the McGill University Health Centre and doctoral student in experimental medicine at McGill University, will present to us in this webinar on the epidemiology of aging, the factors that influence physiological changes and the prevention strategies to use with your patients.
Here are some questions that will be answered:
- At what age is a person considered elderly?
- What is successful, usual and frail aging?
- What are the factors that affect aging?
- How can we maintain functional abilities and avoid the loss of muscle mass?
- How many people meet the physical activity recommendations?
- How can we motivate older adults to maintain an active lifestyle?
- At what point does moving become effective?
