Interventions to Prevent Falls in Older Adults: An Updated Systematic Review [Internet]

Interventions to Prevent Falls in Older Adults: An Updated Systematic Review [Internet]

Evidence Syntheses - Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (US)

Results

To be included in this review, an intervention was required to measure falls as a primary or secondary outcome. Thus, the 36 unique trials (39 articles) reviewed for KQ 1 are a subset of the 47 trials (51 articles) reviewed for KQ 2. Falling was assessed in a variety of ways in these intervention studies (e.g., number of fallers, fall rate, time to first fall, and number of frequent fallers). Number of fallers is the most consistent measure of falling across all studies with the remaining measures used selectively. To enhance comparability, we primarily discuss number of fallers (risk for falling) in the results below. We also reported fall rate if data were available.
