Medications are a modifiable risk factor for falls; therefore, pharmacists play a key role in mitigating medications’ impact on falls risk. This webinar and workshop will provide pharmacists with the tools and resources needed to integrate falls prevention risk assessment and intervention into practice in conjunction with other health care providers. Attendees will be provided with the newly released ASCP/National Council on Aging (NCOA) Pharmacist Falls Prevention Tool Kit, a wraparound product to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s STEADI (Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths and Injuries) Provider Tool Kit.
