Continuing Education and Development for Nurses
Integrating Falls Preventions into Nursing Practice
Workshop for Registered Nurses, Registered Psychiatric Nurses, Nurse Practitioners and LPNs
Falls are one of the most important older adult issues today and are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality for people over the age of 65. Falls are generally a symptom of a problem.
In day one of this workshop participants will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge and skill in falls prevention and reduction strategies across all sectors.
In day two, participants will apply that knowledge in relation to normal physiologic age related changes of the elderly, medications and medication reviews, and acute and chronic medical conditions (including cognitive impairment). Integrating effective fall prevention and reduction strategies into nursing practice can reduce serious fall related injuries, emergency room visits, hospitalizations, nursing home placement, and functional decline.
Learning activities will include pre-study and group discussion, but the emphasis will be hands-on assessment with participants practicing on each other.
