Falls in Assisted Living

Falls in Assisted Living 

The purpose of this course is to enable the learner to recognize people in assisted living (AL) facilities who may be at higher risk of falling and apply methods to prevent falls. Evidence-based practices and interventions for assessing and reducing fall risk are discussed, and the learner is engaged in exploring these techniques. Recommendations from nationally recognized organizations and the findings from a 2012 Cochrane Review of fall reduction interventions are presented to enable the learner to apply them in practical situations when working with seniors in AL communities.
