The toolkit will help you prepare and deliver a presentation on falls prevention. It is intended to be used by occupational therapy practitioners to educate the public on strategies and resources to reduce fall risk, and on the role of occupational therapy in falls prevention. The presentation can be given to a variety of groups and populations in health care and community settings in conjunction with Falls Prevention Awareness Day and throughout the year.
This toolkit was developed by the American Occupational Therapy Association and the Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy, a component of the American Physical Therapy Association, and is intended for any health professional involved in falls prevention to deliver to groups of older adults living in the community. The presentation discusses fall risks and strategies to reduce falls, including participation in evidence based fall prevention programs.
