Healthy Steps for Older Adults is an evidence-based fall prevention program for community-dwelling older adults.
Adults aged 65+ are more likely to have chronic conditions, take multiple medications, and experience adverse drug reactions that result in a fall, a visit to the emergency department, or hospitalization. Attend this webinar to learn more about the new Falls Risk Reduction Toolkit developed by NCOA and the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists. Presenters will also share information about the evidence-based program, HomeMeds, an intervention to improve medication safety.
