Overview

Over the years in Fit For Life we have found that all the members of a nursing home team are an equally vital cog in ensuring that residents live in a happy and safe environment. This is even more evident when it comes to the area of falls and falls prevention as often it is the healthcare assistants and non-clinical staff that can be the ones to highlight the fact that a resident or an area in your home is not safe.

The comprehensive best practice guidelines workshops are designed for clinical and non-clinical team members. Your Falls Prevention and Management Policy would be referenced, along with any in-house interventions, to ensure each team member knows their role.

 

In the workshop all staff would get training in the prevalence of falls in long term care, and what the main risks of falls are with the older adult. We have found that with real experience, the attendees gain so much more from the workshop.

 

We have equipment that attendees use and working with peers, they go about set tasks and then discuss their experiences in the group to help everyone take away valuable learning points. Every team member is given training in their role as defined in your Falls Prevention Policy.

In this training we aim to get the attendees discussing common risk factors they are currently working with in their day to day role and what strategies they are using. We run through common scenarios where falls can occur and suggest best practice actions to help shape future falls prevention planning.
