Have you considered turning your continued education into something more meaningful and impactful? After 30+ years of taking course after course with little to no effect, I have! Here are some courses I have taken, or that are on my list to take, for fall prevention and home safety. They have made a huge impact on my senior care education and treatment!
I am an affiliate for Pesi and Medbridge. If you make a purchase using my link, I will earn a commission, at no cost to you. Your support allows me to provide this blog! Thank you for any support 🙂
CHAMP offers multi disciplinary training for specialization, and even an inexpensive CEUs in specific fall programs. There is also a Home Modification training/ specialization series which is on my “to-do” list!
Pesi offers an excellent course on fall prevention, which can lead to a Fall Prevention Specialist Certification! I have taken this course and highly recommend it. You can renew your certification annually for a low cost, if you demonstrate continued annual education in fall prevention. The Fall Prevention Specialist Certification (affiliate link) has been respected by my coworkers, patients and families. I am frequently referring to the information I learned to help my clients stay safe. I chose to be an affiliate for Pesi because this course was so helpful to me.
MEDBRIDGE (affiliate link) has a huge selection of courses for clinicians, with a large variety of balance and fall prevention classes that you can take, all for one annual fee. I have taken several and loved them. (Used them to satisfy my course requirements to renew my CFPS certification!) Use the code CREATIVEHOMETHERAPY for the lowest discount ($150.00 off ) offered on a quality continued education platform at MEDBRIDGE!
