What does this mean?
Many delegates have demonstrated that they have learnt new knowledge in identifying falls and frailty. The soon that an individual gets identified at risk of falls and frailty the quicker that actions can be put in place to support that person. It is important to understand and feel confident in increasing quality of life in all aspects of health promotion, it shows that we must take prevention seriously rather than only acting once there has been a fall or once a person is unwell. This therefore will prevent further falls and deterioration, increasing the quality of life by improving the confidence that care staff have.
