I need help pleeeeease writing a patient learning objective on fall prevention and dementia using the smart model.
Precisely. This is actually not rocket science. It really is that simple. Fill in the blanks.
Specify what you want to achieve/your intervention: ______________________
Measurable: How are you going to measure it? Before and after your interventions?
Achievable: Don't choose anything that really can't be done; inventing and applying an antigravity machine might prevent falls, but we can't do that.
Relevant (does this have anything to do with the actual needs of the situation? How?)
Realistic (I sorta would put this under "achievable")
Time: time frame, how long are you going to apply your intervention/how often/when will you make before/after measurements
And remember, if you don't think you're doing it right, work with your faculty to understand better. If you knew everything before you did it the first time, you wouldn't have to be in school, right?
