This online course equips you with the knowledge and skills needed to prevent falls effectively, reduce their associated costs, and ensure patient safety.

Who is this online falls prevention course for?

The online falls prevention course is made for many people who want to lower their chance of falling and getting hurt:

1. Older people 

As we get older, we’re more likely to fall because our vision gets worse, our muscles get weaker, and we have trouble keeping our balance. Seniors can learn exercises, tips for changing their home, and how to feel more confident staying active.

2. People with long-term health problems 

If you have health issues like heart disease, arthritis, weak bones, or trouble controlling your bladder, you’re more likely to fall. The course talks about the risks and how to stop falls, especially for people with these problems.

3. People who help family members 

If you take care of older family members or friends, you can learn how to help them move around safely and make their homes safer so they can keep doing things on their own.

4. People who work in healthcare 

Nurses, physical therapists, and others can learn the newest ways to check if someone might fall, what to do to help them, and when to send them for more help.

5. People who keep workplaces safe 

People who work in jobs like construction can learn how to stop injuries by wearing the right gear, avoiding dangers, and moving heavy things safely.

The online course is easy to use and costs less, so more people can learn how to stop falls.

Anyone worried about falling a lot or being in places where falls might happen can take the course to lower their chances of getting hurt.
