On-line CME Webcast Educates On Fall Prevention in Older Adults

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 On-line CME Webcast Educates On Fall Prevention in Older Adults. One of the challenges of being a bipedal species is that we have a higher center of gravity than most animals. And so we can fall easier and when we do, our bodies can pick up relatively more momentum before hitting ground. The result is that every year, millions of Americans suffer a fall and one out of five falls results in serious injury. Total costs: 31 billion dollars a year. On this CME webcast, we’re going to take a look at falls, their risk factors, their medical effects, and what we can do to help prevent our patients from falling. Joining our moderator in the studio is Assistant Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Dr. Joseph Rosenthal and also, physical therapist and the clinical manager for the programming of falls prevention, ReNea Owens.
