Sponsored by the Collaborative Healthcare Patient Safety Organization.

DATE: Thursday, September 17, 2020 from 1:00 - 2:00 PM CST.

PURPOSE:The COVID-19 pandemic and the explosive surge of full-scale isolation and expanded intensive care needs for actual and suspected COVID-19 patients is a prime example. The rapid changes needed to respond appropriately have required an innovative, fast-paced, all-hands-on deck approach to provide, protect and sustain patients’ function and life. In this webinar, two of the country’s leading fall and injury from fall prevention experts,  Dr. Amy Hester and Dr. Pat Quigley will provide just-in-time resources to direct and non-direct clinicians to support patient safety, especially fall and fall injury prevention.  During this webinar, participants will gain knowledge from their shared expertise provided to healthcare systems to prevent and manage falls among COVID-19 patients.

OBJECTIVES:

  1. Address at least 4 nursing practice changes affecting fall prevention due to strict isolation demands.
  2. Compare process changes that can be implemented to increase fall prevention.
  3. Integrate clinical interventions to reduce barriers to fall prevention.
  4. Describe the focused patient education essential to patient engagement in the isolation environment.
