|Title:||Educating health professionals to optimise falls screening in hospitals: protocol for a mixed methods study||Holmesglen Authors:||Shaw, Louise

|Issue Date:||22-Jan-2020||Publication information:||20, article number: 54||Abstract:||Falls in hospitals remain a major challenge to patient safety. All hospitalised adults are at risk of falling during their inpatient stay, though this risk is not always realised by patients and clinicians. This study will evaluate the outcomes of a hospital clinician education program that teaches clinicians how to screen for falls risk and assign mitigation strategies using clinical reasoning, rather than relying on a standardised falls risk assessment tool (FRAT). The education program aims to increase clinician knowledge, motivation and confidence in screening falls risk and selecting individual falls prevention interventions. Perceptions of the education intervention will also be examined.||Description:||Open access journal||URI:||http://holmesglen.intersearch.com.au/holmesglencrisjspui//handle/20.500.11800/190||DOI:||10.1186/s12913-020-4899-y||Journal Title:||BMC Health Services Research||Type:||Journal Article||Affiliates:||Holmesglen Institute
