[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Evidence-based Practice Presentation] Internationally, the growing evidence related to preventable adverse events within healthcare settings has resulted in the creation of numerous patient safety and quality improvement initiatives. In Canada, a national patient safety improvement campaign, and a professional nursing association representing registered nurses at the provincial level, have partnered to combine their evidence-based clinical knowledge and practice change expertise with quality improvement expertise to accelerate improvement in the area of falls prevention and injury reduction The synergistic relationship between this national patient safety initiative and the provincial nursing association has resulted in the evolution of a national falls prevention and injury reduction intervention.

The ultimate goal of this initiative is to improve care by translating ?what we know? into ?what we do?, supporting quality improvement teams to make changes at the local level to enhance patient safety through the implementation of evidence-based practice approaches.

This presentation will discuss several quality improvement strategies utilized within the initiative and share a range of successful knowledge translation practices and spread ideas, including those that are technology enabled, to support falls prevention and injury reduction. The session will also highlight the outcomes of a national web-enabled quality improvement collaborative, share lessons learned through the use of a range of quality improvement methodologies within diverse practice settings, identify their application to practice settings globally, and identify opportunities for future work in supporting the practice-research interface.
