Fall Prevention

The CDC, government programs, and major medical systems believe that fall risk is a growing epidemic with more than one third of adults over 65 years old falling annually and 30% of those people suffering moderate to severe injuries. As healthcare professionals, we play an integral role in identifying risk factors for falls, as well as providing treatment interventions that lead to a reduction in the incidence of falls and hospital readmissions for fall-related injuries.

What this certification series will address:

In this evidence-based, treatment-centered certification, therapists will learn important skills that will allow for better recognition of fall risk factors as well as research-driven and clinically proven interventions to improve patient quality of life and functional independence. In addition to innovative treatment strategies, participants will also learn how to appropriately document skilled interventions to ensure proper reimbursement for services. Finally, the certification content will outline the current best practices and interventions available to healthcare professionals in managing falls and aid in the prevention of future falls.
