Although falls can happen to anyone of any age group, they are undoubtedly more common in the elderly population. While risk factors for falls tend to increase as we age, in most cases they are easily avoidable. Considering the serious impacts of injury or morbidity, more must be done to identify risk and implement preventative strategies. The causes of falls being multi-factorial in nature, calls for an approach which encompasses accurate identification and effective management. Falls prevention programs play a valuable role and an understanding of what this comprises is crucial if we are to tackle this increasing problem.
