Project Title: RNAO Falls

The purpose of this project is to facilitate the implementation of client-centred approaches into falls prevention on the low-tolerance, long-duration rehabilitation unit at Baycrest. As part of this new approach, clinical staff will: a) identify clients with cognitive impairment with the highest falls risk in the unit; b) implement staff huddle consultations for the two clients with highest falls risk in order to determine the client care plan; c) facilitate completion of a falls risk self-assessment questionnaire by all clients on the unit.
