Event description

Description

This half day training course is designed specifically for staff working in a care home environment to provide an awareness of falls in older people and how these can be prevented. Delegates will learn about:

  • Prevalence and consequences of falls
  • Identifying falls and fracture risk factors
  • Dementia and falls
  • Effective interventions to reduce falls
  • Falls prevention equipment
  • Post fall care
  • Awareness of a falls strategy
  • Meeting CQC standards

This interactive course will provide delegates with the knowledge and tools to reduce falls and fractures of elderly residents within a care home environment. The training will increase awareness of the responsibilities of all staff in relation to proactive falls management.

A certificate of attendance and useful handouts will be provided on completion of the course.


Older people living in care homes are three times more likely to fall than older people living in their own homes, with the results of a fall often being much more serious. There are ten times more hip fractures in care homes than in other environments.

Many factors can contribute to this heightened risk, such as:

  • Physical frailty
  • The presence of long term conditions
  • Physical inactivity
  • Taking multiple medications
  • The unfamiliarity of new surroundings.

Implementing a person centred process to manage and reduce falls and fractures in care homes will help to improve the overall quality of care for an individual and will have a huge impact on a person’s independence and participation in life. All care home staff have a key role to play in falls prevention however it is vital that they have the necessary training, understanding, and support from the wider health and social care system.
