It’s Week 3 of our Medicines, people and value and campaign.
Falls and fall-related injuries are a common problem, especially for older people.
Pharmacy professionals in all sectors are well placed to play a role in helping to prevent falls and support people who are at risk, by providing information and helping to optimise patients’ medicines.
After working through the e-learning, this week’s challenge is to speak to five people (for example, colleagues, patients or friends and family) about the risk of falls and how you can increase people’s awareness. You can also consider the impact that falls have on people's lives and what measures pharmacy professionals can take to reduce the incidence of falls.
