Tuesday, December 19, 2017
1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m.

On December 19, NYSPFP will host a coaching call to support hospitals’ efforts to adopt the new strategies in Fall and Injury Prevention presented at the December 12 webinar. Dr. Patricia Quigley will once again encourage participants to redesign their fall prevention programs to take a bundled approach to reducing preventable falls, protecting from serious fall-related injuries, and instilling a greater understanding of the root causes of falls and injury.
