Preventing Falls in Long-Term Care

  • Posted On: September 20, 2022

The Orientation eLearning courses, created by the Ontario CLRI at the RIA, provide education for new team members during orientation, and for existing team members during their annual training. These scenario-based learning courses ensure that learners have the knowledge and skills needed to assist the people they support and are in line with Ministry of Long-Term Care guidelines. They are developed using evidence-based best practices and adult education principles, in collaboration with subject matter experts and LTC leaders.

Preventing Falls in Long-Term Care is a self-paced Orientation course on fall prevention that will equip or refresh LTC team members on the knowledge and skills required to support residents. Two versions are available: one for non-clinical team members and one for clinical team members. Falls can result in serious injury, hospital admission, and long-term loss of mobility and function. By taking this course, team members will learn appropriate awareness and corresponding actions to take to effectively prevent falls and keep residents safe.
