Preventing Falls in the Elderly – updated NICE Guidance

NICE says routine appointments with family doctors, at hospital, or during home visits by social care workers, can prevent falls, disability and loss of independence.

Although most falls do not result in serious injury, statistics show that around 255,000 older people are admitted to hospital in England each year due to falls.

An updated quality standard sets out best practice for health and social care professionals in preventing falls. It calls for people aged 65 and over to be regularly asked questions about whether they have fallen over in the last year or feel unsteady on their feet.

Important news about RefMe

It has been announced today that RefMe will be changing after March 7th, 2017.  This is sad news as it is a popular referencing tool especially with CHHS students.  Full details on this news can be found on the RefMe website but here are a few important issues to note:

  • RefMe is merging with CiteThisForMe
  • If you want to create an account for CiteThisForMe it will cost £6.99 a month, you will however be able to generate a reference list without making an account but it won’t save for future use.
  • If you have a RefMe account you will still have access to your account and saved Reference lists until June 1st, 2017, but you will need to export them before this date or you will lose them.

If you have any concerns about  this news please do get in touch with us, our contact details can be found on our Library Guides pages.
