North Western Melbourne PHN and Estia Health Werribee welcome you to this free education session! This session is suited to clinicians and carers working across the primary health care sector including, general practice and community and aged care settings.
Delivered by Vivir Allied Health, this session will highlight a new perspective in falls prevention and management in older adults.

  • Up-to-date knowledge on effective falls prevention interventions to manage falls risks in the aged care setting. 
  • The ability to transfer best practice falls prevention and management across a variety of settings and activities.
