The mission of Johns Hopkins Medicine is to improve the health of the community and the world by setting the standard of excellence in medical education, research and clinical care. Johns Hopkins nurses have contributed to this mission through their development of intellectual property aimed at improving the quality of patient care.
The Johns Hopkins Evidence-Based Practice for Nurses and Healthcare Professionals Model is a powerful problem-solving approach to clinical decision-making, and is accompanied by user-friendly tools to guide individual or group use.
The Johns Hopkins Fall Risk Assessment Tool (JHFRAT) was developed as part of an evidence-based fall safety initiative. This risk stratification tool is valid and reliable and highly effective when combined with a comprehensive protocol, and fall-prevention products and technologies. Hospitals and other health care organizations can take steps to prevent falls among their patients by implementing the JHFRAT toolkit.
