In a nutshell: An electronic decision support known as Fall TIPS (Tailoring Interventions for Patient Safety) has proven effective in decreasing hospital falls. A paper version was developed for those hospitals without the resources to implement the electronic version, though more work is needed to optimise the effectiveness of the paper version of the tool. This study looks back at the design, which included input from patients and clinical staff to increase its adoption as well as fall prevention best pracices. The redesigned paper toolkit included a clnical decision support system and increased ease of use compared to the original.
