As part of its ongoing efforts to support hospitals in achieving successes in their fall prevention programs, NYSPFP will host two educational workshops for participating hospitals to learn about innovative approaches to reduce falls and related injuries. This solution-based workshop is designed to provide hospitals with information about the state of the science on fall prevention, in addition to practical techniques and strategies to identify risk factors and implement targeted, effective improvement activities. In addition, the workshops will provide a forum for hospitals in New York to come together and share challenges and successes with one another.

The workshops will be led by Patricia Quigley, PhD, MPH, ARNP, CRRN, FAAN, FAANP, Associate Director of the VA Sunshine Healthcare Network (VISN 8) Patient Safety Center and Associate Chief for Nursing Service and Research who will present successful evidence-based fall prevention and protection interventions.
