Event description

Description

Falls have become an epidemic in the United States within the older adult population. The rate of falls is even more common in individuals with lower extremity limb loss. This workshop reviews epidemiology related to falls in the limb loss population, information critical to fall prevention, relevant outcome measures, and practical techniques to teach individuals how to land safely and get themselves up after a fall. Upon completion of the course, rehabilitation professionals will have the ability to immediately apply this information to their daily practice.

This course is delivered in a lecture and lab format. The morning session is a lecture presentation on the topics listed above. The afternoon session is a lab format that includes community members with limb loss who are interested in improving their safety and knowledge in this area. Therapists and participants work together to learn how to land safely during a fall and recover after a fall.

This course is approved for 5.0 CCUs through ProCert.

Lunch is generously provided to all who attend.

Please wear clothing/shoes suitable for moving around and working with patients on the floor.
