Empira is a consortium of Aging Service providers in Minnesota who created a successful falls program in the nursing home setting based on Root Cause Analysis (RCA) and evidence-based research. This course provides all staff in nursing homes with the key concepts, methodology and tools of RCA to assist in determining causation of problems, conditions and situations.
