Course Outline

Falls prevention is an essential skill that will support clients to remain independent for longer. 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.

This workshop 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.

On completion delegates will be able to:


Describe the importance of falls prevention
State statistics and causes of falls
Describe the physical and emotional impact on a person who has fallen
Demonstrate how to risk assess and take preventative measures to minimise falls
Take appropriate action in the event of someone falling
Support a person to regain confidence after a fall
Monitor falls and keep appropriate records
