Product Description

Think you need lap belts and alarms to prevent falls? Here's a friendlier approach that works much better.

When residents get up, they can fall down. If you know their motivation to get up, you're already well on your way to mitigating fall risk in your long-term care facility.  Join expert speaker Diana Waugh for this 1-hour audio conference and learn factors you never knew motivated residents to move and better understand their drive to be in control. Plus, learn how to create a more person-centered approach to fall prevention and the social aspects of care every facility should address in today's era of culture change.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Key resident behaviors that contribute to falls -- and what you can do about them.
  • Staff expectations, communication issues, and environmental elements that spell fall risk.
  • Actions you can take now to improve your residents' quality of life.
  • The "11 Ws" and other assessment tools essential to fall prevention.
  • How to get your faculty and staff to buy in to a total team approach.

Have additional questions? You have the floor with the speaker during an interactive Q&A.

Who should attend? All long-term care staff, including, but not limited to directors and administrators, activities staff, social workers, and mental health consultants.

  • Flexible enrollment. Scheduling conflict? No problem. This session is also available on CD.
  • Expert answers to your tough questions during the interactive Q&A period.
