The Falls Prevention Coalition of Idaho (FPC-ID) is presenting a seminar series in honor of the 2023 Falls Prevention Awareness Month (FPAM). This seminar is designed for healthcare students and practicing professionals. The prevalence of falls and fall-related injuries that can be reduced when addressed as part of primary prevention are reviewed. Simple risk assessments that can be done during a clinic or in-home visit are discussed. Resources an at-risk person can be referred to for treatment and education to prevent falls are provided. The goal is to encourage clinicians to integrate falls risk assessment and appropriate interventions into their everyday practice.
