This course increases the learner's awareness of how to help an individual and reduce their risk of slipping, tripping or falling. It defines a fall and the different hazards that increase the risk of a fall and how to identify potential hazards in a simulated environment.
The learner understands the need to have strength and exercise programmes, the different aids and adaptations used to prevent falls. The last module of the course covers what to do if an individual does have a fall, including advice to give if the individual is on their own. They are also informed about the importance of recording falls, and the post-incident review.
