FREE course: Fall Prevention: Interventions for Older Individuals who are Visually Impaired
The NRTC’s IL OIB-TAC has a new FREE course: Fall Prevention: Interventions for Older Individuals who are Visually Impaired.
Falls are the leading cause of injury among older adults. Having vision loss puts an individual at higher risk for falls. In this course, an interdisciplinary team from Vision Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired, a non-profit agency in New York, bring focus to this important topic. Learn how to identify individuals at risk for falls, home safety checklists, and strategies to prevent falls. This course was written by William Hixson, Travis Joseph, Teddy Kern, and Julie Spodnick. It is available for 1 hour of CRC, ACVREP, or NBPCB credit.
