Falls

The 2021 Falls Prevention Diagram and Change Package was co-designed and co-produced with clinical and quality improvement experts from NHS boards. A Falls Expert Reference Group was convened in October 2020 with representation from across NHS Scotland. A benefit of working in a virtual space was the inclusion and contribution from colleagues in remote, rural and island NHS boards.

This change package is a resource to support NHS boards with falls improvement work. The aim of the change package is to provide evidence-based guidance to support the delivery of falls prevention for patients in acute hospital settings. It brings together what is known about best practices and processes based on evidence from literature, research, and the experiences of others
