Policy Round Series – Applying Rehabilitation Strategies to Population Health: Use of Technology to Support Self-Managment & Prevention
October 5 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
Description: As people age and chronic conditions become more common, rehabilitation strategies can be used to support function and mobility, both to encourage self-management and prevent functional decline. Challenges associated with knowledge translation and health human resources in rehabilitation can create barriers to apply such strategies within existing health service systems. Technological innovations, such as apps, may be considered one strategy to support people to adopt rehabilitation strategies using a population-based approach. This webinar will discuss a project that has evolved from initial app development conceptualized to be applied by rehabilitation professionals in primary care, to a population-based application.
