Overview – Falls and Fracture Prevention in Older People
The incidence of older people falling is much higher than within any other sector of the public. One third of older people are classified as recurrent fallers, meaning a fall suffered by an older person may not be a one off event.
We all worry about what to do if an older person falls, and within the 10 sections this course covers, teaching on how to care for an individual that has fallen is essential knowledge for everyone. Equally, the roles we all undertake as individuals within or outside of the health care profession are outlined, alongside equipment that may aid an older person who has fallen in the past or to prevent a future fall.
