Winning the Fall Prevention Battle
Frontline Strategies for Fall Prevention
Wednesday, February 16th
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM


Target Audience: Administrator, Admissions, Nursing, Therapy, Restorative Staff, QA/Risk Management Staff, Social Services and Staff Development

This 8-week series, running February-March 2022, guides the interdisciplinary team through the elements of an effective falls prevention program. Sessions focus on assessment strategies that guide targeted risk-based interventions, responding to a fall event, and promoting a fall prevention environment. Presented by a team of nurse and therapist experts, this series aims to provide the insights and tools needed to implement improved falls prevention programs in the SNF/LTC/AL setting.

Sessions will address integrating nursing and therapy assessments to determine individual fall risk factors, addressing risks using evidence-based practice, person centered care planning and applying targeted interventions to address risk factors such as dementia, low vision, balance impairment, incontinence as well as improving safety through interventions that consider resident preferences, and application of root-cause analysis when falls occur.

February 16th Session
This session focuses on applying effective measures to improve environmental safety, implement strong activities programs as a component of fall prevention efforts, and promote safe movement in the long-term care environment. The role of targeted programs that facilitate sustained functioning including Restorative Nursing Programs will be discussed.

1. Describe best practices for facilitating environmental safety for fall prevention in LTC inpatient settings

2. Understand the role of activities in the fall prevention program and describe examples of effective activity offerings that address the needs of residents at high risk of falls
