Establishing the effectiveness, cost-effectiveness and student experience of simulation training for the prevention of falls amongst hospital inpatients
This cluster, cross-over randomised control trial with a concurrent economic evaluation (cost per fall prevented) trial will evaluate the effectiveness, cost-effectiveness and student experience of health professional students undertaking simulation training for the prevention of falls amongst hospitalised inpatients. The research targets students on undergraduate medicine, nursing and allied health placement across Peninsula Health acute and subacute inpatient wards. The intervention will train the students in how to provide the Safe Recovery program, the only single intervention approach demonstrated to reduce falls in hospitals.
The research seeks to investigate if the simulation-based Safe Recovery program delivered by undergraduate health care students is an effective and cost-effective method to prevent falls.
