Increasing knowledge of nurses of fall risk by conducting education sessions: Krausset at a(2008) has proven that fall rates decrease while the nursing staff 's knowledge and use of prevention strategies increases. Graham (2012) emphasizes that nurses play a vital role during development of plans for fall prevention. Hence, it goes without saying that Information and Training sessions are needed to coordinate the Fall response from Nurses when a resident on their unit experiences a fall. These sessions need to be planned for all regular and part time nursing/medical facility 's staff in the months prior to implementation of FMP (Tylor,2017).The session needs to be broken down into Introductory sessions and small module sub sessions, with flyers and handouts for those short on time hence being unable to attend in one go.

My PCP and Obstetrics physician, along with the nurses, worked collaboratively to ensure the health of me and my unborn child throughout the course of my pregnancy and after while my parents were still battling cancer.
