Clinical Practice Guideline for Fall Prevention

The American Geriatrics Society and British Geriatric Society recommend that all adults older than 65 years be screened annually for a history of falls or balance impairment. As an important member of the collaborative fall prevention team, primary care providers are encouraged to consult the updated Algorithm for Fall Risk Screening, Assessment and Intervention which outlines the recommended steps to systematically address the identified fall risk factors of concern with your older patients.
