The next Older Adult Falls Prevention Journal Club meeting is Tuesday September 16 from 11 am to Noon. Please note that this is a change from the regular 4th Wednesday schedule.
Please join us for a case study discussion of a physical therapist using the Otago fall prevention program with a home-bound older adult. The Otago programme (developed in New Zealand) is evidence-based and has led to a reduction in falls up to 35 percent. Barbara Newsome, a physical therapist, will lead us through the case study. A copy of the case study and a review of the article are available on the Journal Club tab.
