Mobility aids play a role in falls—and fall prevention. That’s why our October National Fall Huddle is all about walkers, wheelchairs, and canes, covering everything you need to know to use them safely and reduce fall risk. You can earn 1 NAB or nursing CEU for attending.
In this session we’ll explore these mobility aids in depth, including proper use, different options, various attachments and accessories, as well as how to choose the right mobility aid for the right resident to maximize comfort, function, and safety. In this discussion you’ll:
- Outline proper use of mobility aids to reduce fall risk
- Review walker, wheelchair, and cane options—as well as attachments and accessories—for comfort and safety
- Determine how to choose the right mobility aid for the right resident
- Identify the correct use of transfer chairs to prevent falls
We’ll also review case studies, and our fall experts will take your questions. We look forward to having you join us on October 20 for this informative and critical discussion. Watch here.
