Clinical Risk Assessment Tools are specific assessments that are used to measure levels of risk for certain situations, procedures and outcomes in hospitals and other healthcare settings.

In the clinical setting, nurses use a variety of clinical risk assessment tools that will help with the patients care.

This presentation will provide an outline of two key risk assessment tools:

1. Braden Scale, which is used to predict pressure sore risk.

2. Falls Risk Assessment, which is used to predict the likelihood of a fall occurring.

Risk assessment scales and screenshots of relevant forms are included in this presentation.

This presentation was compiled by Gulzar Malik, an experienced and qualified Nursing Educator at IHNA. For more information about our return to nursing programs, please call 1800 22 52 83.
