Preventing Falls in Older Adults

Preventing Falls in Older Adults

“Preventing Falls in Older Adults” contains evidence-based information for older adults, family members and health care providers. Our goal is to raise awareness of known risk factors for falls in older adults and practical steps to reduce these risks.

“Preventing Falls in Older Adults” was created by Lewis Lipsitz, MD and Margaret Gagnon, RN, BSN, with contributions from Douglas P. Kiel, MD, MPH, Marian T. Hannan, DSc, MPH, and Sarah D. Berry, MD, MPH. It was made possible with support from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation.
