I am planning on running a falls education program, what topics should I include?

There are a range of topics that you should include, but first you should decide if the education program is going to be run just by yourself or if a multi-disciplinary team will contribute such as Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Dietician, Podiatrist and Optometrist.

The following topics could be considered for inclusion – falls risk factors and how these can be reduced, balance and safe walking, vision, medications, healthy diet, safe footwear, how to get up off the floor once you have fallen and summoning help.
