Medication and Falls Prevention

Overview

The area of focus for this simulation is the identification of environmental, patient, medical and medication risk factors that may increase or contribute to the incidence of falls. Particular emphasis is placed on the use of medications both contributing to an increased risk of falls and also to those that may lead to poorer outcomes after patients have had a fall. It can be individually facilitated or co-facilitated. The simulation can be conducted in a multi-purpose room, a simulation centre or on a ward.
