Check Your Medicines Forum
March 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmNo cost
The Stay On Your Feet® Check Your Medicines Campaign looks at the importance of good medication management as a strategy to reduce falls amongst older adults. The campaign encourages older adults to take steps to understand their medicines by knowing what medications they are taking and why, and how the side effects of medicines can put them at risk of a fall.
This forum will create opportunities for health professionals to network and share best practice in the identification and implementation of strategies to reduce modifiable risk factors for falling for older people living in the community in WA. The promotion of quality use of medicines by older adults, identifying at-risk individuals and referring to appropriate services are key to reducing the risk of falls in older adults in the WA community.
Registration and light refreshments: 6 pm
