Overview

Physiotherapists are well placed to make a substantial contribution to the improvement of physical activity globally. Improving self-management of physical activity is a particularly vital role for physiotherapists in all clinical areas. However, changing physical activity behavior is particularly difficult. Physical inactivity and sedentary behavior continue to be a significant public health issue globally.

The myMoves program developed at Macquarie University has been built around a framework aimed at empowering individuals to build and maintain a physically active life that is right for them through a focus on four core areas – Managing Activity Levels, Managing Barriers, Managing Expectations and Managing Habits. This webinar will discuss key aspects of behavior change that will enhance the way physiotherapists can assist clients to improve their self-management of physical activity.

Presenter

Taryn Jones, APAM

Taryn Jones joined Macquarie University as a tutor in Physiotherapy in July 2012. Taryn graduated from The University of Sydney in 1998, and since this time has acquired substantial clinical experience working in both public and private sectors across neurological and musculoskeletal domains. Her main area of expertise is in managing complex disability resulting from significant neurological and orthopaedic trauma, particularly those associated with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).

In 2012 Taryn was awarded a Macquarie University Research Excellence Scholarship to undertake her PhD, which she commenced in December 2012. Her doctoral work has led to the development of myMoves for ABI – a self-management program delivered via the Internet aimed at increasing physical activity in Australian adults living in the community following an ABI.
