Falls represent the most frequent type of action and the implications put a huge financial burden on social services and families. This course looks at the causes of falls, how you could minimise the risk of falls and how to support an individual who has had a fall resulting in a serious injury or change in need. The course is paper based and completed from home. It is ideal for those working in the social care sector or caring for relative or friend.
