Falls: Screening, Risk Assessment and Care Planning for Older Patients in the Community Enduring

Aug 14, 2023 2:56:00 PM / by Brooke Kochanski

This activity focuses on fall risk assessment and care planning from the perspective of ambulatory care clinical staff, using the STEADI ("Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths and Injuries") framework.

The scope of the problem and the need for adequate screening and intervention is presented along with practical workflows and steps to take to assess and address fall risk in the primary care setting.

Patient centered communication and resources are highlighted as useful tools for primary care clinical team members (medical assistants, nurses and providers) to help their older adult patients reduce their risk of falling so they can live their best life.
