Webinar: Falls Management

June 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Falls are a significant risk to the elderly population; there are many negative consequences of falls. It takes a team approach to implement a comprehensive falls management program. Cognitive impairment and low vision are two major conditions that result in a higher incidence of falls. This course will present a proactive approach in fall prevention by focusing on how to accurately identify and assess these two common conditions and providing specific strategies for implementation of a successful falls management program.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize major components contributing to fall risk in the elderly population.
  2. Describe the roles of the interdisciplinary team (IDT) with the implementation of a comprehensive falls management program.
  3. Attendees will be able to articulate specific fall prevention strategies for elderly clients displaying cognitive and vision impairments.
