The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) recently released new continuing education (CE) resources aimed toward helping hospital-based caregivers. The resources explain how to recognize which patients are at high risk for falls or pressure ulcers, and what steps can be taken to prevent these potentially serious problems. Learn about how leadership support and education/training of clinical staff as well as other elements can increase the chances of success for improving patient safety in hospitals. The materials also provide information about accessing toolkits to help foster prevention efforts.
