This Fall Prevention Program would be a year-long endeavor and requires consistent application
of principles and strategies. Since we have an existing program, part of our course
would be how to integrate into existing policy.
Therapists/Participants will have the opportunity to:
- Understand and relate the principles of fall prevention and specifics of the Otago Fall Prevention Program to other team members, families, and older adults with whom they serve
- Skillfully and reliably apply the flow, testing and exercise techniques of the Otago Fall Prevention program in their practice setting
- Participate in case studies to integrate the Otago Fall Prevention Program into their existing setting.
