Description:
Laura Finn, BCGP, RPh, adjunct associate professor of pharmacy practice, faculty adviser to student ASCP, department of pharmacy practice and pharmacy administration at Philadelphia College of Pharmacy - University of the Sciences, will discuss high-risk medications that are associated with an increased risk for falls in older adults. This webinar focuses on what steps can be taken to identify FRID (Fall Risk Inducing Drugs) and action steps beyond applying a Fall Risk Alert. Health care professionals in both the inpatient and post-acute setting can implement these strategies including screening, assessing and intervening to reduce falls associated with these high-risk medication classes.
