Whether your patients’ goals are to return to work, play with their grandkids, or travel the world, your hard work helps them progress toward their functional goals.
But one fall can severely set back progress and turn your patient’s life upside down, resulting in rapidly declining health, extended hospital stays, financial loss, fear, and isolation. Falls can often be predicted and prevented if you know what to look for, but all too often, clinicians are so focused on the injury or disability at hand that fall risks are overlooked – until it’s too late.
Become a Fall Prevention Specialist and learn how to help patients avoid falls while retaining the strength, balance, and mobility it takes to stay functionally independent.
Built on today’s best practices, this hands-on program will show you how to better predict falls with a comprehensive risk assessment that combines the best evaluations currently available. Expand your rehab toolbox for fall prevention and post-fall rehab with interventions you can use immediately. Design robust, innovative plans of care for high risk patients with specific impairments, from diabetes to Parkinson’s.
And finally, learn how to develop an effective fall prevention program using tools and strategies that have helped countless patients leave their fear of falling behind.
Sign up today and confidently guide your patients to a fall-proof future!
