4. Name of Falls Program: _______________________________________________________
A. Describe three evaluation methods and their purpose.
B. Intervention list: Name at least five (5) interventions that will help reduce the number of falls. Remember interventions should all be evidence-based and a product of real research from a peer-reviewed journal article(s).
C. Training list: List some of the training that may be needed. (eg, patient, healthcare professionals, administration?)
D. List some of the items you will need to initiate and keep the program running. (eg signs, socks, alarms, etc.). Be specific
E. The estimated cost of the program: Be realistic and remember money is precious in any facility. Also, you will need to present this as a proposal to the Administration.
F. Finally the benefit or Goals of the program. Be specific (SMART)
Again you are presenting this as a proposal to Administration, so make it desirable. You also want to be very clear about the creation of this program. You cannot present a proposal to administration for half a million dollars when you have not described how you will spend the money, or worse, you are just guessing how much it will cost.
