March 9 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
This 8-week series running February-March 2022 guides the interdisciplinary team through the elements of an effective falls prevention program. This session focuses on applying effective, person-centered fall prevention interventions based on resident specific risk factors and fall history. In this second of a 2-part discussion of intervention planning, cognitive, psychosocial and environmental risk factors and interventions to address them will be reviewed including dementia, depression, fear of falls, and promoting optimal sleep health. Best practices for applying information gathered from evidence-based assessments, trends of past falls and connecting the dots between clinical findings and fall prevention approaches will be emphasized.
