Abstract

Older people frequently fall. This is a serious public health problem, with a substantial impact on health and healthcare costs. These guidelines translate trial evidence about prevention of falls into recommendations that can be implemented in different settings, with the aim of reducing the rate of falls and injurious falls in people over 65.
