Falls Facilitated Learning Series Measures Feedback from staff and stakeholders were used to measure response to both Education delivery and the Falls Report. Subjective evaluation forms tailored specifically for each project were used to gather and analyze responses. Comments from staff at all training sessions were positive. Attendees actively participated in discussion during and after each in-service. Front line staff responded well to short interactive training sessions, as is evidenced by their comments on the evaluation forms. Responses on the evaluation forms reflected that staff identified “most helpful portions” from the presentations that were most relevant to their area of focus. E.g. Recreation focused on walking groups and outings in relation to falls risk factors.
Falls Facilitated Learning Series Measures Responses captured on evaluations completed by staff trialing the Report Form indicated that the report form was “easy to use” and all respondents would recommend continued use. Overall satisfaction was rated at 9/10. Sample staff feedback included “reminded me to ask appropriate questions and possible solutions to the issues” as well as “for the most part less writing and gets to the point” and “makes me think of all the little things that could have been factors” Falls metrics were used to measure our progress related to falls reduction/injury reduction No data collection completed for January/February at this time.
