Get expert guidance on identifying fall prevention techniques that can help YOUR situation!
In this live interactive workshop, Dr. Kernisan will provide information and education on developing a personalized fall prevention plan. She’ll be coaching participants through the following steps:
- Identifying your own (or your older parent’s) likely fall risk factors. Different people fall for different reasons. Learn what might be the most likely causes and risk factors for your situation.
- Identifying medications that increase fall risk. Many medications increase the risk of falls in older people. We’ll review which medications are most likely to increase fall risk, so that you’ll know which of your own medications might be most useful to discuss with your usual doctors.
- Identifying the fall prevention strategies most likely to help you. Based on the personalized fall risk factors you identify during the workshop, we’ll help you understand which fall prevention strategies are likely to be helpful. We’ll also review the top fall prevention strategies that help most older adults.
- Developing an action plan. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have developed a next steps action plan, to help you better work with your doctors on developing a fall prevention plan that’s right for you.
