    Written by Carole Eldridge, DNP, RN, CNAA-BC, Evidence-Based Falls Prevention, Second Edition, is designed especially to help nursing staff understand the vital role they play in falls-prevention. It contains a comprehensive overview of key falls-risk and falls-prevention studies to ensure valuable, evidence-based training.
