Dr Helen Hawley-Hague obtained her PhD from the University of Manchester in 2011, her work focused on older adults’ uptake and adherence to exercise classes and the role of the exercise instructor. She has worked both in Public Health and in research looking at falls and fracture identification and prevention and exercise pathways for over 12 years. She was awarded the MRC Centenary Award in 2012 to further develop her PhD work as a postdoctoral researcher and looked at the delivery of evidence based strength and balance exercise programmes in practice. She was the Research Associate and Communication and Dissemination Manager for the FARSEEING project and led the work on the taxonomy and on behaviour change and attitudes towards technology, including advising on the design of technology so as to encourage older people’s engagement with it. For further information please go to farseeingresearch.eu. She is now the Scientific Coordinator for ProFouND- The Prevention of Falls Network for Dissemination, profound.eu.com/ and has just been awarded an NIHR Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (focused on smartphone technology and delivery of evidence based strength and balance for falls prevention within health services).
