Purpose and Aims of CAPTURE Falls
The purpose of the CAPTURE Falls project was to implement the safe practice of inpatient fall risk reduction supported by a culture of safety, teamwork, and sensemaking. We trained interprofessional teams to collaborate and “make sense” of the risks associated with inpatient falls at three levels: (1) the patient, (2) the microsystem (unit), and (3) the organization. We implemented this intervention—Collaboration And Proactive Teamwork Used to Reduce (CAPTURE) Falls—in 17 Nebraska hospitals, 16 of which are Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) with 25 or fewer beds.
- Aim 1: We partnered with 17 Nebraska hospitals to develop a customized CAPTURE Falls action plan to improve the structure and process of fall risk reduction.
- Aim 2: We supported 17 Nebraska hospitals to implement a customized CAPTURE Falls action plan.
- Aim 3: We evaluated the implementation of the CAPTURE Falls action plans in 17 Nebraska hospitals using the Context, Input, Process and Product (CIPP) model.
