This article reviews fall prevention research using the Centers for Disease Control public health model and suggests several critical research questions at each step. Research topics include surveillance and data systems, fall risk factors, development, evaluation and implementation of fall interventions, translation of interventions into programs, and promotion, dissemination, and widespread adoption of fall prevention programs. These broad topics provide a framework for research that can guide future advances in older adult fall prevention.
