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 in your practice to mitigate fall risk
- Track your patient’s risk management progress
This app provides screening questions and tools, recommends risk stratification based on performance, assessments, interventions and education, provides up to date resources, and will email both you and your patient results.
The Fall Prevention App is based on the Center For Disease Control’s STEADI tool which was released in late 2012 to standardize and simplify fall risk screening and management practices in the clinical setting. The app was developed as a partnership between Evidence In Motion and Shubert Consulting, a firm based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina with expertise in translating research into practical clinical applications.
