Education
Group lesson on the wards for all nurses
A CDrom with education material and a knowledge test
Case discussions on every ward
Patient involvement
An information folders for the prevention of pressure ulcers, urinary tract infection and falls, separately. In addition to giving oral information nurses were asked to give the folder to patients at risk for the specific AE.
Feedback
The nurses register the patient's daily care and the presence or absence of an AE in a computerized registration system. This digital program generates feedback by charts on the process and outcome indicators.
