Webinar | Enhancing Falls Prevention: Collaborative Informational Session


Falls are relatively common in healthcare, accounting for 250,000 injuries and up to 11,000 deaths each year in the United States alone. Despite ongoing safety efforts, the rate of falls in healthcare continues to increase.

ECRI and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) PSO recently announced a new opportunity for healthcare providers to work collaboratively alongside both subject matter experts and peers to identify and implement strategies to reduce falls-related risks and improve safety. The collaborative will implement a learning system approach to disseminate patient safety best practices across the healthcare community. Using performance improvement tools, participants will receive feedback on how to better implement falls-related safety solutions.

Learning Objectives

During this informational webinar, speakers will discuss:

  • Benefits of a collaborative approach for enhancing safety
  • Methodology and tools to create measurable change
  • Structure of the collaborative
