New eLearning course on fall prevention released

Posted On: September 20, 2022

The Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging (RIA) has released a new Orientation course: Preventing Falls in Long-Term Care. This course is available at no cost to support new and existing team members in fulfilling Ministry of LTC’s training requirements.

 

Falls can result in serious injury, hospital admission, and long-term loss of mobility and function. By taking this course, team members will learn, at their own pace, appropriate awareness and corresponding actions to take to effectively prevent falls and keep residents safe. Two versions are available: one for non-clinical team members and one for clinical team members.
