Falls improvement collaborative: provider stories

(0)

Pilot organisations that took part in our improvement collaborative to prevent and reduce instances of falls in hospitals, provide an update of their progress.

The falls improvement collaborative was one of our initiatives to support providers to deliver the safest and best quality care to patients.

We invited 19 acute, community and mental health trusts to take part in this improvement collaborative aiming to achieve a 5% reduction in falls rates (calculated by reported falls adjusted for under-reporting, comparing whole-year 2017/18 data with a baseline of 2016/17). 

Here, some of the trusts share their examples of the how they are putting what they've learned from the collaborative into practice, looking across a range of areas including:

  • why they are focusing on falls as an organisation
  • their aims
  • the 90 day improvement cycle
  • the story so far
  • lessons learned
  • other insights from the collaborative 
  • next steps
