This Fall Prevention Program would be a year-long endeavor and requires consistent application
of principles and strategies. Since we have an existing program, part of our course
would be how to integrate into existing policy.

Objectives: Therapists/Participants will have the opportunity to:
1) Understand and relate the principles of fall prevention and specifics of the Otago Fall Prevention Program to other team members, families, and older adults with whom they serve
2) Skillfully and reliably apply the flow, testing and exercise techniques of the Otago Fall Prevention program in their practice setting
3) Participate in case studies to integrate the Otago Fall Prevention Program into their existing setting.
