Falls Awareness-Falls have a significant effect on the long term wellbeing of patients and their ability to independently carry out Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s). The added impact upon the individual, their life expectancy dependent on injuries sustained, their carers and family, the NHS and Social / Support Services. In our Falls Awareness Program we examine the effects on the individual including carrying out a full ‘wellness’ check on our patient and their living environment.

The course has been compiled ‘in house’ by our Senior Tutor, a recently serving Paramedic who has undertaken additional specialist education in the field, and who is passionate, not only through his experiences with his patients, but with his own family.

Aimed primarily at the Care Industry, but of interest to anyone with an elderly or infirm relative, we examine, as an interactive group, the opportunities that are presented to us to reduce the incidence of falls, and where additional care and support may be obtained.

No formal assessment is given but ongoing assessment will be undertaken by the Tutor. A certificate will be given which is valid for 1 year for your CPD folder.
