Abstract: 

This 45 minute Power Point presentation is designed to provide trainees and practicing hospitalists with an approach to the evaluation of hospitalized patients who fall. It was originally developed to provide advice to interns and residents at the University of New Mexico upon implementation of our hospital’s multidisciplinary falls prevention program.  It is case-based, includes a brief review of the evidenced-based literature, and then gives the authors’ opinions about how best to approach this situation. Also included is a list of pertinent literature and a multidisciplinary checklist, developed by the authors and used at the University of New Mexico Hospital.

Educational objectives: 

1. Identify at least 3 factors that are epidemiologically associated with falls in the elderly.

2. State the most common etiology of falling in the elderly.

3. Summarize the epidemiology of in-patient falls.

4. Describe the three steps in evaluating the in-patient who  falls

5. Demonstrate an appropriate bedside evaluation for injury of an in-patient who has fallen. 

6. Demonstrate how a multi-disciplinary team can use a checklist to evaluate and manage a hospitalized patient who has fallen.

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

This presentation was specifically designed for the in-patient hospital setting. The authors do not advocate using this approach in other settings (such as emergency departments, skilled nursing facilities, or nursing homes). Many of the recommendations are based on the authors’ opinions as there is little-evidenced based literature in this area. The authors are formally studying the clinical usefulness of the checklist, and are especially interested in comments, critical appraisals, and similar experience of others.

Abstract: 

One-hour exercise to stimulate discussion and learning about advance directives for small to medium groups. Introduction and wrap-up are very brief powerpoint presentations. Full instructions are included.

Educational objectives: 

Basic knowledge of advance care planning. Learners should be able to: 1) Compare and contrast advance directives, living wills, health care proxies and instructional directives 2) Compare and contrast decisional capacity and competence 3) Identify resources available to patients for advance care planning

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

Has been used for groups as small as 3 and as large as 25. It has worked well for medical students, residents, geriatric fellows and clinical support staff (case managers, social workers, etc). It works particularly well with mixed learning environments. This has been used in medical school classes and geriatric interest rounds. Learners should have some basic knowledge, but the card sort helps to identify level of knowledge and also identifies misconceptions to allow building on current knowledge base. It stimulates a rich discussion and is interactive to keep learning fun. A great option for an afternoon lecture.
