Ø  about interventions that have been shown to be effective in preventing falls

Ø  how evidence can be applied in residential aged care

This workshop will give you the opportunity to refresh and expand your knowledge, share your experiences in falls prevention, and will provide you with the latest evidence to help you improve the care you deliver to your residents.

Ø  Allied health, nursing, clinical and medical staff
