Course Outline

Falls prevention is an essential skill that will support clients to remain independent for longer – gain this skill in our Falls and Fragility Course. Falling can result in serious injury or maybe even death. It is accepted that experiencing a physical injury is usually painful, however, what  is often underestimated, is the emotional impact of suffering falls. Living in fear of another fall can destroy a person’s confidence and as a result, they often become less mobile.  When people stop moving around they lose muscle condition, which has the effect of making a fall even more likely. For that reason, minimising or preventing falls can have a major impact on a person’s health and wellbeing.  It is therefore important that all staff have the skills to encourage and support a person to be mobile, while engaging in good falls prevention practice.

Our Falls and Fragility Training Course explores the many reasons why a person might fall and actions that can be taken to minimise or prevent falls. Attendees will also learn what to do if a fall does occur,  how to take appropriate action and finally, how to record the incident correctly.
