Medication Decisions that Reduce Risk for Falls
This webinar will focus on the relationship between falls and medications. Over 30 years of research and over 100 studies have shown us which medications put seniors at risk for falling. These risky over-the-counter and prescription medications will be discussed. The way medications are taken can also impact risk for falls. This webinar will support seniors to identify risky medications and begin discussions with their healthcare professionals to make informed decisions to reduce their risk for falls.

Nov 10, 2021 11:00 AM in Mountain Time (US and Canada)
