What Digital Data Means for the Future of Falls Prevention

How can we learn from data insights surrounding falls prevention and what the future of falls prevention could look like in Social Care.

The Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) reported that in 2017 to 2018 there were around 220,160 emergency hospital admissions related to falls among patients aged 65 and over, with around 146,665 (66.6%) of these patients aged 80 and over.

People who live in care homes have an increased risk of falling. Falls are common, harmful, costly, and difficult to prevent. This webinar will cover how can we be effective and learn quickly from data insights surrounding falls prevention, what research has been done, what the future of falls prevention could look like and the impact digital data can make in the prevention of falls.

This webinar will be led by Nourish CEO and founder Nuno Almeida, NCF’s Digital Transformation Lead Adam Hunt and Nourish’s Chief Product Officer Jeremy Baldwin. Dr Fran Allen, Research Fellow from Nottingham University will also be sharing insights about the Action Falls programme (formally GtACH) which trains and supports care home staff to identify the reasons why residents fall and then guides them to complete actions to reduce falls. In a large multicentre randomised controlled trial called the FinCH trial, the Action Falls Programme was cost-effective and reduced falls by 43%.

You will take away from this webinar:

  • How digital data is currently helping to reduce falls

  • What lessons can be learnt from using digital data to analyse incidents to help to prevent future ones

  • What does current research tell us about falls prevention management – Dr Fran Allen will be sharing insights from the ongoing Action Falls programme being led by Nottingham University

  • How the quality and quantity of data can support existing and future research, and how you and your care team could get involved
