The University’s Doctor of Physiotherapy Health And Wellbeing Collaboration Program (HAWC) is calling for new adult volunteer participants for its March-June session.
Volunteers can be of any age, with any current or past medical problems, who are happy to allow two of Macquarie’s Doctors of Physiotherapy and Doctors of Medicine students to visit them approximately four times. Staff are welcome to volunteer as well.
The program involves physiotherapy and medical students and volunteers meeting on a regular basis to discuss their health and take basic assessment measures
Although no direct treatment is given to volunteers, students will, over time, perform assessments of health status, mobility and balance which may provide valuable information to the volunteer, their family and caregivers.
Students may also use assessment findings to suggest exercise and physical activity programs that will be tailored to the volunteer’s health goals and needs.
If you would like to be involved, fill in an expression of interest.
