Tips for behaviour change for diet and exercise with Dr Shannon Mihalko (2021)
Exercise, physical activity and education are the cornerstone treatments for osteoarthritis. However, despite their proven efficacy, they are difficult to maintain long-term. Behaviour change techniques, which are specific techniques such as goal-setting or monitoring that can help people stick to an OA management plan long-term. On this week’s episode of Joint Action, we are joined by Dr Shannon Mihalko to discuss how we can use behaviour change techniques to stick to our diet and exercise routines.
Dr. Shannon Mihalko is a behavioral scientist whose research focuses on adherence and quality of life in adults with chronic disease, with a special interest in knee osteoarthritis and cancer populations. Specifically, her work examines determinants and consequences of behavior change and adherence, with a specific focus on building self-efficacy in older adults to engage in physical activity and healthy nutritional practices on their road to independence.
