What we are doing
These resources have been collated to help sites use the NAIF results and dataset for quality improvement.
Many of the patient risk and environmental risk factors that were audited in the NAIF are also covered in the FallSafe falls prevention resources and CareFall e-learning tools:
FallSafe is an interactive e-learning course it covers patient risk factors (cardiovascular, balance, confusion, bone health, medication, vision and toileting); environmental risk factors (patient environment, special equipment and special observation) and what to do after a fall. It concludes with a case-study based exam, which requires a score of 75% to pass. It has been developed primarily for registered nurses working in acute or community hospitals, but any staff member with an interest in falls prevention can use it.
CareFall is an interactive e-learning tool for foundation level doctors. The tool covers the knowledge needed to identify and reduce patient and environmental risk factors to assist with reducing inpatient falls.
