Fall risk screening identifies older adults at increased risk of falls who may need a more detailed multifactorial fall risk assessment and intervention, which can in turn prevent falls and fall-related injury.
Falls screening tools are sensitive, brief, and easy to complete assessments that attempt to identify individuals at a higher than average risk for falling who would likely benefit from a more in-depth evaluation.
