St Mary's Hospital have been reviewing and revising their Falls Policy and as part of this work a hospital wide falls awareness educational programme has also been devised to complement it.The educational programme is being led by Daragh Rodger,Advanced Nurse Practitioner for the Older Adult Community. Anne Spencer, Educational Technologist (PETAL) is again working with Daragh and the staff, families and carers to devise the educational resources which will underpin the adoption of the new Falls Policy.
The logo for the 'Forever Autumn' Project is in the top right hand corner of this screen and will appear on all the resources developed. The logo depicts the differing coloured leaves which are commonly seen in the wonderful woodland in and around St Mary's Hospital in Phoenix Park, Dublin. A series of posters have been created to highlight some of the important facts associated with Falls and Falls Prevention, these can be downloaded from below.
