Resource: Reducing older adult falls in institutions

The past 12 months have been filled with an extraordinary number of fall prevention tactics. Community screenings, teaching professionals how to screen, implementing an education program for those who've developed a 'fear of falling', expanding Tai Chi Moving for Better Balance in different settings and on and on.
One of the most troublesome is reducing falls in institutions or those who qualify such as in CBAS programs. I presented at a local nursing home the other day. Much of the information has been well developed and compiled into a toolkit. I highly recommend for those involved with fall risk reduction or fall prevention to review and implement as 'prescribed'!
