Active Ageing

This module focuses attention on the health issues faced by the ageing population. It aims to equip students with the knowledge to be able to plan and deliver programmes designed to take a proactive approach to preventative health and active ageing. Students will study nutrition for the elderly, functional lifestyles, chronic disease care, osteoporosis and falls safety, diabetes, preventative health screening, and exercise prescription. They will also learn about the methods of increasing health literacy in the ageing population.

Active Ageing is a module selected from the Diploma in Sports Wellness and Services.  It enables participants to acquire new skills or deepen relevant skills without the need to pursue a full specialist diploma. As this is a stackable course, participants may choose to complete the remaining modules within the validity period, of 2 years, to be awarded the full Diploma qualification.
