Falls modelling in hospital

People Involved

Project Description

Falls are a major public health issue and a key concern in hospitals where falls in older adults represent a leading cause of injury and reduction in quality of life.

Monitoring falls will identify areas for improved practice and areas of concern. It will provide understanding of the most relevant risk factors and the amount of variation that should be considered normal.

The statistical models developed will provide a resource that can be used by healthcare teams to identify actionable targets to reduce falls and improve the interpretation of incoming data to better support health planning around this crucial area
