Preventing Falls in Community‐Dwelling Frail Older People Using a Home Intervention Team (HIT): Results From the Randomized Falls‐HIT Trial
TLDR
To evaluate the effect of an intervention by a multidisciplinary team to reduce falls in older people's homes, a large number of people in these homes have experienced falls in the past.
The Effectiveness of a Community‐Based Program for Reducing the Incidence of Falls in the Elderly: A Randomized Trial
Objectives: To test whether Stepping On, a multifaceted community‐based program using a small‐group learning environment, is effective in reducing falls in at‐risk people living at home.
Kenosha County Falls Prevention Study: A Randomized, Controlled Trial of an Intermediate‐Intensity, Community‐Based Multifactorial Falls Intervention
TLDR
The aim is to decrease the rate of falls in high‐risk community‐dwelling older adults and to improve the quality of life for these older adults.
Evaluation of a falls prevention program for independent elderly.
TLDR
Findings suggest that the No More Falls! program was successful in reducing falls among older adults.
Intense Tai Chi Exercise Training and Fall Occurrences in Older, Transitionally Frail Adults: A Randomized, Controlled Trial
Objectives: To determine whether an intense tai chi (TC) exercise program could reduce the risk of falls more than a wellness education (WE) program in older adults meeting criteria for transitioning
Practical implementation of an exercise-based falls prevention programme.
TLDR
An individually tailored, home-based, strength and balance retraining programme, which has proven successful in reducing falls and moderate fall injuries in people aged 80 years and older is developed.
Interventions for preventing falls in the elderly.
TLDR
There is inadequate evidence for the effectiveness of single interventions such as exercise alone or health education classes for the prevention of falls, and health care purchasers and providers contemplating fall prevention programmes should consider health screening of at risk elderly people.
Effect of dissemination of evidence in reducing injuries from falls.
TLDR
Dissemination of evidence about fall prevention, coupled with interventions to change clinical practice, may reduce fall-related injuries in elderly persons.
'Knowing what makes them tick': motivating cognitively impaired older adults to participate in restorative care.
TLDR
The study findings were used to revise the Restorative Care for the Cognitively Impaired Intervention and could direct future implementation of programmes in nursing home settings.
