Walsall CCG, in partnership with Keele University, have developed an Emis web protocol and template to help identify patients at risk of falls and potentially at risk of unplanned hospital admissions.

The Falls Risk Assessment Toolkit allows users to search for read codes consistent with predictors of falls risk as recommended by NICE and high risk psychotropic medicines which can contribute to falls. It can also identify patients over the age of 65 who may benefit from a medication review or falls assessment  and prompt background alerts to systematically identify ‘at risk’ patients.
