National Audit of Inpatient Falls: Expressions of interest invited to represent the BGS

The Falls Workstream is currently contracted (2018-2021) to deliver the National Audit of Inpatient Falls (NAIF), a clinically led, web-based audit of inpatient falls prevention care in acute and community hospitals in England and Wales. NAIF aims to improve inpatient falls prevention through audit and quality improvement.

The British Geriatrics Society has representation in the form of an advisory group member who represents the BGS's views and contributes to developing the audit tools, facilitating uptake of the audit nationally and informing the analysis, being represented in reports as well as publications from the data.

We are now seeking expressions of interest to extend this representation. The candidate may be a medical doctor, nurse or therapist. The time commitment would be a quarterly two hour teleconference and 1 - 2 half day face to face meetings per year.

For more information, contact: Julie Whitney, Clinical Lead, National Audit of Inpatient Falls (NAIF), Royal College of Physician (Direct line: 020 3075 1511 )
