Do you have a fall prevention program that works, but you canít obtain the resources to implement it? Falls lead to injury and increased length of stay that are no longer reimbursed, thereby making falls prevention a top priority for hospitals today. However, many healthcare facilities continue to manage fall prevention by a nurse-management program, without strategies to incrementally increase program infrastructure and capacity to change impact and outcomes.
Combining cost methods with quality improvement programs can help organizations determine the need for revising program infrastructure and capacity to enhance patient, unit and facility outcomes. To help hospitals begin to build a business case for fall prevention programs, ANAís Nursing Quality Network is offering a specially focused webinar: Building the Business Case for Fall Prevention Programs. Register today to make the case for your Fall Prevention Program!
After the webinar, participants should be able to:
1. Detail the burden of falls to society, facility and patient
2. Discern barriers and facilitators to a business case approach
3. Differentiate methods to build a business case
4. Construct an initial business case approach.
Who should attend?
Quality Improvement Professionals, Nurse Managers, Staff Nurses, Hospital Administrators
