Learning Circles

The Disability Services Commission funded the development and publication Learning Circles Package on Fall Prevention. Learning Circles are an informal teaching method that encourages self directed learning on topics of interest. Falls Prevention is an important part of Health care particular in the older population and this work was seen as another approach to an important medical issue. Rachel Robertson and Carers Association were crucial to the success of this package.
