Reducing falls in hospitals

Catalyze has been helping the NHS to reduce the number of falls and harm from falls in hospitals. Two workshops were facilitated with members of the Falls Clinical Community, using our structured approach to Complexity Management.

The first workshop was at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, where the community worked together to develop an Influence Map representing the complexity of the challenge:

At the second workshop in Manchester, the same participants used the Influence Map as the basis for developing a Breakthrough Plan to tackle the issues identified:

The plan is now being taken forward by the community under the guidance of the NHS QUEST network.
