The World Health Organization reports that 30% of individuals over the age of 65 years fall at least once each year, and up to 30% of those who fall sustain a debilitating injury. The incidence of falls increases with age. The Joint Commission identifies reducing the risk of patient harm resulting from falls as a National Patient Safety Goal. Falls represent the most frequent cause of accidents in the home and falls are the leading cause of accidental death in older adults. Attendees at this course will gain new skills to assess fall risk and provide interventions to reduce fall risk in the older adult across the continuum of care.
