My topic is: Fall Prevention: "The Tower of Risks" This model was developed by a team of fall safety experts at Yale University and clinically proven to reduce 3 out of 10 falls. The research shows that having 4 or 5 risk factors makes the probability of a fall more of a certainty. In order to prevent falls, we have to first be aware of the risk factors and then remove or manage each of the risks one by one. This is an engaging presentation and enjoyed by everyone.
