Webinar: Falls and Fall Prevention-Falls can Change Everything: Your Role in Prevention (Nov 8)
A fall can have a significant impact on a person’s independence and lifestyle. Among older adults in Alberta, falls are the leading cause of injury and 1 of 3 older adults will fall at least once per year.
Join Melanie Morgan-Redshaw from the Injury Prevention Centre to learn about risk factors that can lead to a fall including issues with balance and leg strength, vision, medication, cognitive issues, and home safety. Interventions which may help to prevent a fall, such as everyday movement, footwear and foot care, and having a trip-free home, will be discussed. Finding Balance falls prevention resources, including videos, information sheets, and booklets, will be highlighted.
Learning objectives include how to:
- Recognize risk factors that can lead to a fall
- Identify interventions that may help prevent falls
- Become familiar with falls prevention resources that can be shared with older adults and family members.
The webinar presentation includes a live Q&A with the University of Alberta Injury Prevention Centre and CLPNA representatives.
