April Falls 2016
April Falls Day®/Month theme for 2016 is:
‘Share the care- Falls prevention is everyone’s business®’
- involve everyone in the care of the older person – patients, family, carer, doctors, nurses, allied health staff – to prevent falls and keep older people safe.
- Promote April Falls Day® messages to prevent falls and harm from falls across your hospital, community setting and residential aged care facility.
This newsletter highlights some of the activities that occurred in NSW Local Health Districts throughout April 2016 as part of April Falls Day®/Month 2016.
We thank all staff and organisations who actively participated in April Falls Day®/Month activities in hospital, community and residential care services in their Local Health Districts.
We also thank the LHD Falls Prevention Coordinators and other staff who collated and forwarded April Falls reports and photos.
