Falls among older adults remain one the most pressing issues for rehabilitation professionals. More than 95% of hip fractures are caused by falling and falls cost the healthcare system about $31 billion dollars annually. The good news is that falls are not a normal part of aging and that they are preventable. Additionally, many of the risk factors associated with falling can be modified with the help of healthcare professionals. But clinicians have to understand the complexnature of falls and implement the most up to date interventions to effectively manage these patients.
This course will provide attendees a deeper understanding of the interplay between risk factors associated with falls. Additionally, attendees will review and practice the most evidence-based examination and evaluative tools available to be able to develop the best individualized plan of care of their patient and document skilled justification for treatment. Finally, the course content will outline the current best practices and interventions available to healthcare professionals in managing falls and aid in the prevention of future falls.
