(2) Methods: semi-structured interviews with health care providers assessed their perspective on the evaluation of jointly developed tools for reporting fall risk, continuous training of the health care providers, sensitizing media campaigns, and others. (3) Results: One of the project's strengths is the interprofessional continuous trainings. These trainings allowed the health care providers to extend their network of health care providers, which contributed to an improvement of fall prevention. Challenges of the project were that the standardization of the interprofessional collaboration required additional efforts. These efforts are time consuming and, for some categories of health care providers, not remunerated by the Swiss health care system. (4) Conclusions: On a micro and meso level, the results of the present study indicate that the involved health care providers strongly support interprofessional collaboration in fall prevention. However, time and financial constraints challenge the implementation. On a macro level, potential ways to strengthen interprofessional collaboration are a core element in fall prevention.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Wieber, Frank</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Glässel, Andrea</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Rüesch, Peter</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Volken, Thomas</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Glässel, Andrea</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Baumann, Isabel</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Rüesch, Peter</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Volken, Thomas</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/58684"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-09-23T07:47:08Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>Interprofessional Collaboration in Fall Prevention : Insights from a Qualitative Study</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-09-23T07:47:08Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Baumann, Isabel</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dcterms:issued>2022</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
