In this episode I discuss a paper published in 2019 in the Journal of Physiotherapy, entitled “Physiotherapist advice to older inpatients about the importance of staying physically active during hospitalisation reduces sedentary time, increases daily steps and preserves mobility: a randomised trial”. The first author of the paper is Nayara Alexia Moreno from the University of Sao Paulo in São Paulo, Brazil. This is an open-access paper, the paper is here.

The authors have kindly shared their booklet used in this study. The booklet is here.

I mention a previous journal club episode where I discuss measuring physical activity. That podcast is here.
