FINDING BALANCE ALGORITHM
Falls is usually the result of a complex interaction of risk factors. The greater the number of risk factors present, the greater the likelihood that a fall and/or a fall-related injury will occur.
The most effective practices to prevent falls and fall-related injuries involve multiple intervention strategies and target a range of risk factors. This demands a multidisciplinary and intersectoral approach.
Since the Finding Balance Algorithm will be updated on an ongoing basis as new research, best practice and resources are available, we encourage you to continue to consult this tool for more information about ways to improve on care and safety which are based on the best evidence-based information on fall prevention.
