Know you should be screening your older patients for falls but not sure where to start?
The Fall Prevention app will help you:
• Quickly and easily screen your older adult patients for fall risk
• Use the most current evidence-based tools to mitigate fall risk
• Track your patient’s risk management progress
Fall Prevention is a clinical app that leads you through screening questions and tests to identify and stratify fall risk in your patients; recommends further assessments, interventions, education, and resources to mitigate fall risk based on the latest clinical research; and provides the option to email results for each patient screened.
Fall Prevention was developed by a partnership between Shubert Consulting and Evidence in Motion. The app is based on the STEADI tool, released in 2012 by the CDC to implement standardized fall risk screening practices.
