UBC Digital Emergency Medicine Unit is conducting focus groups as part of a research study to increase our understanding of fall risk assessments in the emergency department (ED) and what information would be useful to determine fall risk. You are in an ideal position to share valuable first-hand information from your own perspective.

The focus group will take around 30-45 minutes (either virtual or in-person, depending on your preference and availability) for us to capture your thoughts and perspectives on current methods of assessing fall risk assessments in the ED. Your responses will be confidential and assigned a unique study ID and personal identifiers will not be revealed during the analysis and write up of the findings.

You will receive a small honorarium for participating in the study as a token of our appreciation, and the information you provide will be a valuable addition to our research and findings could lead to greater understanding to better inform the development of an ED-specific fall risk assessment tool.

If you are willing to participate or have any questions, please email Sarah Park at sarah.park@ubc.ca.

Thank you very much.
