Description

NIH Pathways to Prevention (P2P) Workshop: Can Physical Activity Improve the Health of Wheelchair Users?

Monday March 30, 2020, 8:30 a.m. ET to 5:45 p.m. ET
Tuesday, March 31, 2020, 8:30 a.m. ET to 1:00 p.m. ET

This P2P workshop will assess the available scientific evidence through a systematic evidence review, invite numerous speakers to present their research, and engage with a community of wheeled mobility device users to better understand the potential benefits of physical activity interventions for people at risk of using, or currently using, wheeled mobility devices as a result of a disabling injury or illness.

The following questions will be addressed:

  1. What is the evidence base on physical activity interventions to prevent obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular conditions, including evidence on harms of the interventions in people with multiple sclerosis (MS), cerebral palsy (CP), or spinal cord injury (SCI) who are at risk for or currently using a wheeled mobility device?
  2. What are the benefits and harms of physical activity interventions for people with MS, CP, or SCI who are at risk for or currently using a wheeled mobility device?
  3. What are the patient factors that may affect the benefits and harms of physical activity in patients with MS, CP, or SCI who are at risk for or currently using a wheeled mobility device?
  4. What are methodological weaknesses or gaps that exist in the evidence to determine benefits and harms of physical activity in patients with MS, CP, or SCI who are at risk for or currently using a wheeled mobility device?

The workshop is free and open to the public, and is designed for researchers, healthcare professionals, and non-scientists. Individuals who use wheeled mobility devices and caregivers are particularly encouraged to attend. Registration is required, and attendees can join either in person or via NIH VideoCast (in-person attendance is strongly encouraged).
