Falls are a major cause of morbidity and serious health issues in older adults that can have devastating outcomes. Using real-world cases and audience participation, this lecture will discuss a hands-on approach to identifying fall risks, preventing falls, assessing patients post-fall, and treating older adults. Office-based balance and gait assessments that can be conducted in small spaces will be demonstrated. Evidence will be presented about updated recommendations on fall treatments, including simple recommendations to multi-level interventions that improve the care of older adults. Advice on selecting the right durable medical equipment (e.g., canes, walkers, rollators, wheelchairs, and scooters) and measuring for the correct size equipment will be provided. Very few people outlive their canes so many older adult patients use hand-me-downs, resulting in poor posture, gait instability, and additional falls. After attending this lecture, you will understand how to best care for your older adult patients who are prone to fall.

The stark reality is that soon there will not be enough clinicians to care for our citizens sufficiently. Instead of relying on the more traditional and already overburdened one-to-one model, we must adopt technology that enables one-to-many care delivery models. In particular, artificial intelligence (AI) and other emerging technologies allow for outsourcing of routine tasks to machines, creating space in the schedule for human interaction between clinician and patient. With increasing application of these technologies comes greater associated risks, which range from privacy and security to the ethical use of a growing pool of personal health data. As AI and other telehealth tools intersect with care delivery, how can we minimize the risks while improving care delivery, patient and clinician satisfaction, and clinical outcomes?
