77. Fall Prevention in Community-Dwelling Older Adults. (Abstract)

Fall Prevention in Community-Dwelling Older Adults. Falls are common among older adults. One in 3 adults aged 65 years or older and 1 in 2 adults aged 80 years or older fall each year. Interventions for prevention have been identified; however, they are often not addressed in primary care practice. Screening all older adults annually for falls can identify who will benefit from further clinical evaluation and management. Falls and the need for care from subsequent injury increase with age

79. An economic evaluation of the SUNBEAM programme: a falls-prevention randomized controlled trial in residential aged care (Abstract)

An economic evaluation of the SUNBEAM programme: a falls-prevention randomized controlled trial in residential aged care To estimate the cost-effectiveness of a strength and balance exercise programme (SUNBEAM) which has been shown to be clinically effective in reducing the rate of falls in residents of aged care facilities.An economic evaluation was conducted alongside a pragmatic cluster randomized controlled trial that included 16 residential care facilities and 221 participants. Mean (...) participant age was 86 years, 65% were female and 78% relied on a mobility aide. A cost-effectiveness analysis examined the costs of providing the exercise programme and costs of health service use arising from falls in each arm (intervention and usual care) over 12 months.Incremental cost-effectiveness ratios were calculated for the cost per fall avoided. Costs were bootstrapped to obtain adjusted confidence intervals for the incremental cost-effectiveness ratios.Of 63 facilities contacted, 16 met

80. Factors associated with the likelihood of fall-related injury among people with lower limb loss Full Text available with Trip Pro

Factors associated with the likelihood of fall-related injury among people with lower limb loss People with lower limb loss that live in the community fall at a rate that exceeds that of other vulnerable populations such as hospitalized elderly people. Past research in a small single state study has identified factors associated with fall-related injury. The purpose of this study was to use a larger multistate sample of people with lower limb loss living in community settings to evaluate (...) factors associated with fall-related injury in a multivariable model.This retrospective cohort study included community-dwelling people with lower limb loss participating in wellness-walking programs in 6 states within the United States. Fall-related injury was considered injury sustained during a fall to the ground that required medical care. Pearson's Chi-squared test and student's t-test were used for descriptive statistics. Odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals from multivariable logistic
