8 Sep 2014 | Reducing Harm from Falls
The Health Quality & Safety Commission's Reducing Harm from Falls programme continues to strengthen connections across aged care and primary care/community settings, and continues a focus on falls in district health board hospitals.
Initiatives currently underway include the following.
The recently released Topic 10 – An integrated approach to falls in older people: what is your part? reinforces important messages from internationally respected 'change agents' such as Helen Bevan from the NHS, who advocate for stronger integration and connectedness in our work to bring about positive change and improved patient outcomes.
