Event Description

Full Description:
Given the high prevalence and burden, and the large expense and limited durability of surgical interventions, there is a need to identify effective, affordable and sustainable management options for People with Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). Exercise is a key recommendation, and can provide significant improvements in symptoms and PAD-related outcomes.

This presentation will describe a brief behavioural counselling intervention being used in a NHMRC-funded multi-centre trial to promote walking in people with PAD. The counselling is based on the 5A framework and includes two individualised 1-hour face-to-face sessions and two 15-minute telephone calls over three months. The intervention is delivered by allied health professionals who receive training in the counselling protocol, and supervision from a psychologist.

Dr Nicola Burton is a senior research fellow at The UQ School of Human Movement & Nutrition Sciences. She is a registered psychologist with endorsements in clinical and health psychology.
