A unique opportunity is open to members of the Canadian healthcare community to contribute to the new way forward on protecting patients from falls.
As part of the Canadian Patient Safety Institute's (CPSI) SHIFT to Safety initiative, CPSI and the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario (RNAO) are putting together a team of experts in fall prevention and injury reduction to help craft the next version of the Falls Getting Started Kit.
The Getting Started Kit is a free resource designed to help care providers successfully implement evidenced-based falls prevention and injury reduction strategies to keep their patients, clients or residents safe. Like all SHIFT to Safety tools, this kit empowers healthcare providers to prioritize safety when caring for their patients and to promote a safe healthcare experience for everyone.
The primary role the faculty will be to:
- assist in the revision and dissemination of the update of the Falls Getting Started Kit,
- contribute to knowledge transfer activities such as webinars; and
- offer expert knowledge to CPSI/RNAO and on occasion, to respond to inquiries from the field.
