Many health care interventions are challenging to implement because of inadequate stakeholder engagement and identification of barriers. The brainwriting premortem technique can rapidly inform program implementation. Learn about this technique and share the article with all of your colleagues (it is Open Access). In this issue also learn about a violence management program that was implemented following staff requests for measures to protect them from patient and visitor violence. This is an interesting program that can be replicated in your own setting. Other articles address fall prevention, a teach-back toolkit for medication education, using continuous vital sign monitoring to detect early deterioration of patients, nurse peer review, and many more.
