Falls Prevention - Falls Risk Factors & Interventions ('Live') Online
This training course is a comprehensive and convenient module that is completed 'Live' online with one of our Falls Prevention Specialists.
We cover all current falls facts and prevalence data, the most important falls risk factors and best practice interventions that you can immediately implement into day to day practice.
Review questions are included throughout the module and content navigation tools aim to keep the learner engaged in the learning process along with downloadable PDFs with more in-depth information in areas such as falls risk increasing drugs (FRIDs).
Six risk factors will be described in detail, with interactive examples of what effects these risk factors have on individuals that lead to an increase in falls risk. From this you will be taught what interventions are best used to manage these.
We can tailor the training to integrate your falls policies and systems to ensure that your team can immediately put what they have learned into practice to start preventing and reducing falls in your home or homes.
