Buffalo’s own Institute for Personalized Care is designed to provide better delivery of services to frail and vulnerable people, particularly the elderly, and support advocacy and public awareness of their needs, through a program of cross-disciplinary research, education and practice development. The Institute is offering a Webinar on reducing falls and increasing mobility in the home.

According to the Institute, the session will “review alarm use which has become the standard of practice, as restraints were, for plans of correction as it relates to accident and incidents as well as prevention of falls. We are now in a period of rethinking their use, as we understand more about their damaging effects, and about the role mobility plays in reducing falls with injury.”

The webinar is 1 and 1/2 hours and is pre-recorded. You can learn more by going here and scrolling down to the webinar titled, “Promoting Mobility and Reducing Falls By Individualizing Care and Eliminating Alarms.”
