Masterclass Webinars

The Live Longer Better in Hertfordshire Masterclass Webinar series is designed to supplement the national thought leadership events (which can be viewed here) with a suite of additional learning and networking opportunities. These webinars will be led by a variety of presenters from international experts to local deliverers and will cover a range of topics around Active Ageing. 

Most webinars are recorded and hosted below, however, there are some that can not be recorded due to licensed funding reasons.

It's Never Too Late to be Active

Live Longer Better in Hertfordshire Masterclass Webinar

Thursday 24 June 2021 

Delivered by Claudette Rhiney, Health Improvement Coordinator for Lifestyle within Hertfordshire Public Health, this webinar looked ahead ahead to the It's Never too Late to be Active campaign ahead of it's launch in May 2022.

The campaign aims to encourage and support inactive older adults, aged 55+, to become more physically active, in line with national physical activity guidelines. In particular the campaign will target individuals within this demographic having experienced significant physical deconditioning effects of COVID-19 as well as the associated lockdowns and restrictions.

It is a social media physical activity campaign, underpinned by physiological and behaviour change principles and this webinar will delve deeper into the rationale for its development, the insights informing it and behaviour change techniques that it is utilising. 

Falls Prevention with HCPA StopFalls

Live Longer Better in Hertfordshire Masterclass Webinar

Friday 22 October 2021 

Our second masterclass webinar was led by Verity Forbes from Hertfordshire's Care Providers Association StopFalls Service.   

As we emerge further from the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions the importance of protecting our older adults from the dangers of falls is greater than ever. Within this webinar Verity discussed the theory that sits behind falls prevention, the importance of physical activity (along with some examples of good practice) and details some of the resources that are available to everyone in Hertfordshire to help protect against the dangers of falls.
