RCP Develop New e-Learning Tool to Improve Patient Care

« View all News items
05 Dec 2014

CareFall is a new interactive inpatient e-learning tool for doctors, developed by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) and commissioned by NHS England.

The tool covers the knowledge needed to identify patient and environmental risk factors to assist with reducing inpatient falls. CareFall concentrates on the key areas of knowledge for foundation doctors, including medication and falls, as well as cardiovascular causes of falls.

Foundation-level trainees are often the first doctors to see a patient after a fall, so the e-learning course also covers the safe and effective management if a patient falls in hospital. For more information please visit the RCP website.
