One day course at HCPA Campus
This course focuses on falls prevention and Enabling Care.
Recent guidance on the physical and mental health benefits of being more: active, empowered, and independent, now emphasises what has been known in Therapy settings for a long time, and that is: through an enabling approach, people can actually improve, and live longer, better lives!
This same ethos is also important for falls prevention, we know that falls aren’t always preventable, but it is essential that individuals are still improving not only their quality of life but also severity of falls, focusing on better health outcomes for individuals.
Delegates will learn new skills from our qualified Physiotherapist, enhancing knowledge and practical skills, which will allow them to help individuals improve such things as sit to stand, mobility, and positioning.
• Outline the most effective methods to help reduce falls
• Identify common risk factors
• Understand the importance of exercise
• Understand how to risk assess falls using a multi-factorial risk assessment
Delegates are expected to be engaged in learning, participate in all activities including group discussions, and share their own experiences of working in the care sector, whilst respecting confidentiality.
*Please note: As per our T&C’s, this course carries a fee for non-attendance, non-completion or late cancellation.
