Patient Safety and Quality has a number of  elearning modules available on falls prevention including:

  • A new Preventing Falls elearning course is now available.  In this elearning course, you'll examine the impact that falls and fall-related injuries have on our patients, residents, their families and the health care system.  By implementing best practice strategies and working with patients and their multidisciplinary teams, we can reduce the risk of patients falling in our care.
  • A Comprehensive care elearning course is now available, which provides important education and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points with a completion certificate for all clinicians.  The course covers preventing falls and harm from falls; preventing and managing pressure injuries; nutrition and hydration and screening, assessing & managing delirium and cognitive impairment, and end of life, and includes patient case studies and their goals of care.

Healthcare professionals external to Queensland Health can access the Preventing Falls and Comprehensive Care elearning courses
