Talking about Real Issues
All of these educational programs organized by Independent Living Specialists focus on talking about real healthcare issues. This July we are focusing on the topic “falls prevention” under aged care. We understand the difficulties faced by caregivers and have put together a very educational seminar that covers many aspects under this topic. At the end of each session, our guest speaker will help you understand how to apply this knowledge practically.
Ideas of Professionals with Experience
Our seminars are conducted by healthcare professionals who will be more than happy to guide you through any questions on the topics discussed. The Falls Prevention Seminar will be conducted by Ms. Anja Hauenschild, an occupational therapist, who believes that providing expert information and advice for people to make informed decisions about their needs is vital in maximizing independence and safety with everyday activities.
You can easily participate in any of these events. All you need to do is, keep a lookout under the ILS website or facebook page to be informed of any upcoming events. All events can be booked online via the ILS conference portal.
If you plan on working as a caregiver, you may find our seminars important and educational. Whether you join us as a student, a graduate, a health professional, a community care and allied care worker, we believe you can all benefit while connecting with other fellow health professionals alike.
