Topic: Fall Prevention in the elderly population living in a Health Care Center
using STEADI Algorithm for Falls Risk.
Read the following
question and information provided by your instructor:
The investigator assessed the providers’ knowledge about
Stopping Elderly Accidents, Death, and Injuries. (STEADI) the algorithm
developed by CDC in 2019 for healthcare providers in a home health setting.
The format and the tool focus had significant themes: (a) Screening (b) testing of the ability to Assessment, and (c) Interventions CDC 2019.
The instrument used is a questionnaire that included 15
items, and it was created by a research team with clinical and academic
expertise in Falls prevention that will use the three components of the STEADI algorithm
Screening, Assessment, and Interventions.(CDC 2019).
The Investigator assessed the provider’s knowledge about
using the STEADI algorisms approach through a questionnaire of 15 questions
with open-ended answers or selecting the correct answers to evaluate the pre-and
The STEADI algorithm
demonstrated good content validity and reliability CDC (2019).
The Stopping Elderly Accidents Death and Injuries.
(STEADI) reduced the number of falls compared to current interventions to
prevent falls among older- home health patients in Florida over ten weeks?
Theoretical Framework that best fixes
an Introduction to Feasibility.
Examples and ideas:
Explain some factors that you find could be
fixed to your research problem. Example: cost of Hospital admission after an older
fall in the facility or residential place. Consequences for both patient and the
facility and the cost for Medicare and the government.
Explain risk factors associated with falls
in the facilities.
Explain why it is essential to improve care
providers’ knowledge about Stopping Elderly Accidents, Death, and Injuries.
(STEADI) the algorithm developed by CDC in 2019.
