Over the past two decades there has been a great deal of international, specialized research activity focused on risk factors and prevention strategies for falls in older people. This book provides health care workers with a detailed analysis of the most recent developments in the area and helps bridge the gap between scientific journal articles and general texts. The book is constructed in three parts: risk factors, prevention strategies, and future research directions. Coverage includes epidemiology, critical appraisal of the roles of exercise, environment, footwear, and medication, evidence-based risk assessment, and targeted and individually tailored falls-prevention strategies. Falls in Older People will be invaluable to medical practitioners, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses, researchers and all those working in community, hospital and residential aged care settings.
