Teach-Back for Fall Safety: Beyond Checking the Box
May 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The use of the teach-back method for structured falls education can help patients more fully understand their unique fall and injury risks while in the hospital and realize the consequences of a fall, if one does occur. Evidence strongly supports structured falls education with cognitively intact patients as an effective fall reduction strategy, and teach-back provides the process to make it effective. In the May 11 virtual event, national falls subject matter expert, Patricia Quigley, PhD, ARNP, CRRN, FAANP, will review the nurse’s professional role in supporting informed decision making as it relates to fall safety. Key teach-back content and questions will be reviewed as a framework for engaging the patient in their fall safety plan. A teach-back tool will be shared along with tips on how to spread the adoption of teach-back into your nursing staff’s repertoire.REGISTER NOW
