Learn how to bring fall a prevention strategy into your practice. A recent study revealed falls result in an estimated annual cost of $49.5 billion dollars. Another study calculated a total cost to treat falls by using direct medical cost estimates in 2015 for both fatal and non-fatal fall injuries in the hospital, ED, and outpatient settings costing Medicare $31.3!! Podiatrists are on the front line for fall prevention and with proper screening and implementing corrective measures we can all help reduce patient fall injuries.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify common fall risk diagnoses.
  2. Understand corrective measures that can be implemented to reduce your patient’s risk of falling.
  3. Demonstrate the different DME options that can help prevent injuries among patients at risk of falling.
