FRAT – Falls Risk Assessment Tool

Posted on Monday, November 7th, 2016

Falls prevention is a critical issue, not just in the UK but also in world health initiatives. In order to help local councils and domiciliary care providers prevent falls we have co-created a tablet application which contains a standardised risk assessments process designed by falls experts. Through a series of co-design workshops with care professionals we came to understand the risk assessments process and then created the application with the help of staff from all levels of domiciliary care, from individual care home staff to social care commissioners.
