Description

The Improving Patient Safety in Long-Term Care Facilities: Training Modules materials are intended for use in training frontline personnel in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. The materials were developed for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) under a contract to the RAND Corporation. They are organized into three modules:

  • Module 1: Detecting Change in a Resident’s Condition
  • Module 2: Communicating Change in a Resident’s Condition
  • Module 3: Falls Prevention and Management

The Instructor Guide comprises all three modules, including suggested slides and pre- and post-tests to gauge the student’s knowledge level before and after training. Separate student workbooks are available for each module.
