Falls: A community approach

Physiotherapy should be provided, with other interventions such as community exercise groups, to all older people who have fallen or are at risk of falls.

This is the message in a new evidence-based clinical briefing developed by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy in partnership with Agile, the professional network for physiotherapists working with older people.

It highlights how a multifactorial approach to falls assessments and prevention, which includes physiotherapy, can reduce falls in older people.
