This presentation will describe how to gather and use EMS 9-1-1 falls-related call information to identify patterns and predictors of falls in the community and in assisted living facilities.
The speakers will describe their roles as EMS dispatch and the Fire Department in working with their local falls prevention coalition and share how they were able to use EMS call data to make a real and lasting impact around falls prevention in their community, including a 12% overall reduction in 911 calls related to falls.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe the collaborative activities between a falls prevention coalition and EMS/fire department;
- Examine strategies to collect and analyze EMS 911 call data for falls prevention
- Formulate ideas for using EMS 911 call data to develop interventions to address patterns and predictors of falls;
- Analyze the impact of the “Mission: Accessible” project, a falls prevention coalition activity to reduce frequent 911 callers for falls and lift assists.
