Topic: Managing the risk of falls of Dementia patients on Benzodiazepine in the acute mental health ward.
THIS IS THE FEEDBACK FROM THE LECTURER REGARDING THE TOPIC ABOVE
So, working on the idea, you need to link together the risk of falls associated with benzos and the link of benzos to dementia. I am conscious that is very obvious however in a QI proposal we need to be clear and specific. So, a lot of this will fit in section three the Problems and Evidence section of your portfolio.
Be very clear about your intervention. So is it simply highlighting this in the handover? That is fine but be specific about how this would happen.
Alternatively, you could do a poster that highlights to staff the link between falls/benzodiazepines/ and dementia.
Or somehow highlight through a color code on a patient's bed area that they are on bezo's and are at risk of falling?
