An online learning course for staff working with people who are at risk of falls. The course utilises a recorded (voice over) PowerPoint presentation which can be viewed multiple times. There are also various activities and a case study to engage the learner. The course requires the completion and return of a workbook which serves to foster a deeper level of learning.

You will receive an email with full instructions by 10am on the day of the training (including all resources and links)
