Event summary

In March 2016 the West of England AHSN held a collaborative learning and sharing event focused on reducing harm from falls.

You can read the output report from the event or our blog post about the day.

We are holding a follow up event on 13 March 2017. Session topics are including falls prevention in the acute and community settings, NHS Improvement National Falls update, environmental ways to reduce the risk of falls, and a storyboard walkthrough to share and learn.

This event will also be an opportunity to share local learning through networking and storyboard presentation of your care pathway, as well as hear about national report findings.

Please bring to the event your documentation and policies plus any other information that is relevant on the different stages — assessment of patients, care plans for patients identified at risk of falls, post-falls care and investigations, and monitoring patients as their condition changes. More details will be sent with joining instructions.
