Welcome to the third issue of the RAC Communiqué for 2014 in which we examine three cases involving falls. It has been some time since we addressed this topic. Our long-term subscribers will recall it was the subject of our second issue published in March 2007. We would like to thank the hundreds of subscribers who completed the survey evaluating the RAC Communiqué. The responses are still being collated and we will publish the results early next year.
As promised we have given the RAC Communiqué and our website a ‘makeover’ and are pleased to welcome the return of our sister publication, which focuses on acute hospital care the ‘Clinical Communiqué.
We also feature a short story on the findings from our systematic review of medico-legal deaths in nursing homes that was recently published in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society.
