Welcome to the first PoPCRN "fast feedback" web-based survey. The goal of these fast feedback surveys is to provide quick answers to focused questions that are generated by participating sites, allowing individual sites to compare their experience to that of a number of other organizations. The web-based format allows for rapid sharing of information among many hospice/palliative care organizations.
Based on suggested study topics that we received, the focus of this first fast feedback survey was fall rates. We asked each site to share their most recently available 12 months of data for number of falls and number of patient days. PoPCRN summarized these data, distributing the aggregate findings via the web site, email listservs, and newsletter.
This survey was open for participation between Monday, October 1, 2001 and Friday, October 12, 2001.
