Join Patricia Quigley, PhD MPH APRN FAAN FAANP FARN, and Lyndee Leavitt, BSN RN ONC, on July 22 at 12 pm CT as the Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN) and the National Association of Orthopedic Nurses (NAON) recognize and celebrate the integration of expert orthopedic and rehabilitation clinical nursing knowledge, skills and practices that maximize function, independence and safety of patients living with orthopedic conditions across settings for care. Across orthopedic conditions treated with conservative or surgical interventions, pain, restricted mobility, and loss of muscle strength and range of motion, and other conditions influence even further loss of function and independence. These same conditions increase the risk for falls. While falls remain a leading adverse event among this population, especially the elderly, solutions do exist to prioritize and reengineer fall prevention programs to mitigate and eliminate modifiable risk factors, avoid over-reliance on universal fall prevention practices and shift practice to population-based fall prevention. Examples of leading populations include orthopedic conditions that result in chronic pain, back injuries, hip and/or knee replacements.
