This presentation will focus on assisting exercise professionals including AES and AEPs better support their older clients, whether they are living in the community, currently undergoing hospital-based rehabilitation or living in residential aged care.

Specifically, this older adult-focused presentation will provide an overview of:

  • some of the key issues influencing their musculoskeletal health and physical function
  • the current evidence regarding the optimal exercise prescriptions for improving musculoskeletal health and physical function outcomes; and
  • potential additional innovative approaches that may further benefit the older client.
  • Presented by Dr Justin Keogh

    Justin Keogh is an exercise/sports scientist and behavioural researcher with a strong research and translation interest in the benefits of exercise, particularly resistance and balance training, in offsetting treatment, and sacropenia-related effects in cancer survivors and older adults, respectively, and in improving athletic performance.

    His sports science research has concentrated on activities such as rugby union, powerlifting, sprinting, golf and strongman and now Australian rules football and swimming. He also has become particularly interested in female athletes, particularly with respect to how strength conditioning and movement competency may reduce their elevated risk of lower limb injury.

    Of particular relevance to older adults including cancer patients and survivors, Justin is interested in ways in which exercise may maintain or improve body composition, physical function, and quality of life and reduce cancer progression. Over the last 12 years, Justin has also become very interested in the barriers, facilitators and motives that older adults and cancer survivors have in performing healthy behaviours, including physical activity. Such research has involved quantitative and qualitative components.

    Justin is a Fellow of Exercise and Sport Science Australia, the International Society of Biomechanics in Sport, and the Australian Association of Gerontology, and currently serves on the Exercise and Sport Science Australia's Sports Science Advisory Group, Australian Strength and Conditioning Association's Conference Committee and the Australian and New Zealand Society of Sarcopenia and Frailty Research's Sarcopenia Diagnosis Task Force Committee.
