Falls Prevention Summit: Reducing Inpatient Falls & Harm from Inpatient Falls

Fri, 6 Dec 2024

15Hatfields, London, OR Virtual, Online

Follow the conference on X #InpatientFalls

This national falls summit focuses on reducing inpatient falls, and harm from inpatient falls. Through national updates, practical case studies and learning from the National Audit of Inpatient Falls report, the conference will provide a step by step guide to implementing the multiple interventions that have been proven to reduce falls in your service. The conference will also focus on Gaining Insight from Inpatient Falls (GIIF) and linking with the Patient Safety Incident Response Framework.

“Our guidance on how to respond to inpatient falls has been developed to support the new PSIRF. This includes the language used to describe and define responses to incidents as well as the suggested methods. The PSIRF will recommend more proactive and focused investigations, with alternative methods such as “hot debriefs” and “after action reviews” being used for some incidents. In PSIRF, patient safety incident investigations (PSII) will focus on key safety concerns and be led by a suitably qualified investigator. PSIIs into falls with severe harm may be warranted locally and decisions based on the actual and potential impact of incident, the likelihood of recurrence and the potential for learning... Principles and behaviours encouraged by PSIRF include openness and transparency, engaging with patients, a just culture and continuous learning and improvement.”
