Patient activation related to fall prevention: a multisite study

Christiansen TL, Lipsitz SR, Scanlan M, et al. Jt Comm J Qual Patient Saf. 2020.
The Fall TIPS (Tailoring Interventions for Patient Safety) program has been shown to be effective in preventing inpatient falls through formal risk assessment and tailored patient care plans. This study demonstrated that patients with access to the Fall TIPS program are more engaged and feel more confident in their ability to prevent falls than those who were not exposed to the program.
