Abstract

Tai chi--moving for better balance, a falls-prevention program developed from a randomized controlled trial for community-based use, was evaluated with the re-aim framework in 6 community centers. The program had a 100% adoption rate and 87% reach into the target older adult population. All centers implemented the intervention with good fidelity, and participants showed significant improvements in health-related outcome measures. This evidence-based tai chi program is practical to disseminate and can be effectively implemented and maintained in community settings.
