Resource in Falls updated 13 Apr 2015

This workbook is designed to help connect data at a district level, with local action, using the Atlas of Healthcare Variation falls domain.

The workbook From Atlas to Action is designed to help connect data at district level from the falls atlas, with local action. It is designed to focus your attention on the data in eight indicators looking at the incidence of fall-related injuries, and aspects of treatment, in people aged 50 and older. It is provided in MS Word format so it can be customised for your district health board.

The data provide a baseline for your planning and improvement projects. The expert advisory group has recommended an integrated approach to falls in older people with 10 priorities identified for provider attention. A tool for organisational audit of the 10 priorities has been developed to be used in conjunction with the workbook. It also supports the May 2015 campaign theme asking, "What's your plan?". It will be available on this page towards the end of April.
