Don’t Let Falls Get You Down! AHCA Clinical Practice Series Focuses on Prevention


Recognizing that falls within nursing centers are a reason for high hospital admissions, suffering for residents and frequent deficiencies, the AHCA Clinical Practice Committee has created eight, 1 hour, pre-recorded webinars hosted by experts. The series provides a wide array of insights into protecting residents from falls and useful strategies related to sleep, environment, QAPI, workplace practices, regulatory issues, and family and leadership practices. These sessions build upon and complement each other and provide an opportunity for centers to share them with staff at an array of times, even on different shifts. The program has a free companion guide A Guide to Managing Falls Risks You can register now for the webinar series and watch at any time.


The first installment in the 2014 Clinical Practice Series, which is also still available for viewing, is called “Sharing Advanced INTERACT Success I & Sharing Advanced Interact Success II”.  In November, the committee will complete the series with webinars on End of Life Care and on reducing antipsychotic drug use.
