May 27 Webinar: Fall Prevention

Our fall prevention webinar has already taken place, but you can find a video of it here.

Join Shield HealthCare and Capital Nursing Education on Wednesday, May 27 2015, for a FREE webinar on Fall Prevention – featuring Ann Wright, RN, CWOCN, CNS.

Every year, one out of every three adults age 65 or older falls. Falls among older adults can cause serious injury or disability, and they are the leading cause of injury death among those 65 and older. Many of these falls are caused by lifestyle factors and common hazards in the home.

In this informative webinar, health care professionals and caregivers will learn about the latest fall risk factors and preventative measures to avoid falls. Topics include:

•  How falls impact the health care system

•  Making an accurate Fall Risk Assessment

•  Identifying dangers in the home: Fall prevention room-by-room

•  Fall risk and incontinence: What’s the relationship?

•  Community and educational resources

    I’m very aware of the fall risks for senior and am on a very tight schedule. I’m wondering if you would be kind enough to let me know what the relationship is between incontinence and falls.

    Thank you.

    Hi Ms. Weissman. Thank you for your question. We appreciate that you have a busy schedule, and we’d be happy to reply to your comment again with a link to the article we will be creating about the relationship between incontinence and falls. That article will be posted with the information from our webinar after the webinar has taken place. Again, thank you for your comment.
