Access Recording

Join us for an overview of the Fall TIPS (Tailoring Interventions for Patient Safety) Program and its impact on falls reduction in acute care settings.

The TIPS Program is a nurse-led, evidence-based fall prevention intervention that uses bedside tools to communicate patient-specific risk factors for falls and uses a tailored prevention plan. The toolkit provides care team members with the information they need to routinely engage in the fall-prevention process.

Objectives

  • Examine the issue of fall prevention in hospitals, and how Fall TIPS can help address this.
  • Review the evidence behind Fall TIPS, how to use the Morse Falls Scale to conduct a fall risk assessment, and the Fall TIPS auditing process.
  • Discuss the results of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)-funded Patient-Centered Fall Prevention study.
  • Discover how to join the Fall TIPS Collaborative to receive the Fall TIPS Toolkit, training, and implementation materials.
