In a nutshell: This American study aimed to conduct comparative research to estimate the effects of falls, negative affect and behaviour, and how these associate with societal costs in implementing evidence-based education and best practice programmes in nursing homes. The participants were given either standard training, training and implementation modules (provided to facility staff), and training and implementation modules (augmented by surveyor training). A significant reduction of 5-12 annual falls was found, especially in the intervention group without surveyor training, which also produced cost savings.
