Friday 27 Jan 2023

Hallam Conference Centre, London

Follow the conference on Twitter #NHSfalls

This national falls summit focuses on reducing inpatient falls, and harm from inpatient falls. Through national updates, practical case studies and learning from the 2021 National Audit of Inpatient Falls report (published in November 2021). The conference will provide a step by step guide to implementing the multiple interventions that have been proven to reduce falls in your service

"There is still work to do to improve prevention and management of inpatient falls and fractures."

National Audit of Inpatient Falls November 2021

"A hip fracture is one of the most severe consequences of a fall. Evaluating the care given to inpatients who experience such fractures, will likely reflect the quality of fall prevention practice and post-fall management available to all inpatients. Not all falls are avoidable, and it is vital that patients are enabled to be active during their inpatient stay. However, it is equally important that all possible steps are taken to identify and address modifiable falls risk factors"

Julie Whitney, National Audit of Inpatient Falls clinical lead Royal College of Physicians, 11th November 2021
