  • · Private Payers are Disappearing—Shifting Risk to Consumers;
  • · Poor Lifestyle Choices Are Costing More; and
  • · Payers Are Demanding Value and Are Learning How to Do It Effectively.   
This year, we wanted to identify one example of how these forces have been catalysts for reform in Maine.

Transforming Fall & Fall Injury Prevention Workshop

Hospital nurses and other interested healthcare workers from across the full continuum of care are invited to a day-long workshop to explore best practices in preventing patient falls and fall injury. The workshop will be led by Dr. Patricia A. Quigley, who is nationally and internationally known for her work in transforming fall injury prevention programs for the elderly and disabled. Dr. Quigley will motivate nurses and others to move beyond traditional fall prevention programs to design population-specific injury protection programs that reduce the risk for moderate to serious injuries and loss of life. Even falls with minor injury can have grave consequences for older adults. Nurses can lead changes in fall-injury practices that are both protective and promote patients’ independence, function and social integration. Attendees will be asked to go beyond an over-reliance on fall risk screening and universal fall precautions driven by scoring to implement a bundled approach to fall prevention, detection and protection.
