November 1, 2007

In March 2005 the National Council on Aging (NCOA), in collaboration with the Archstone Foundation and the Home Safety Council, released the landmark evidence-based National Action Plan to prevent falls and falls-related injuries in older adults. It was published as a consensus document resulting from a two-day summit of many of the nation's leading experts in fall prevention. Since its release it has served as a national blueprint, describing what should be done to reduce the growing number of falls and fall-related injuries among older adults.

The following progress report assess the advancement of the plan's 36 strategies; surveying Falls Free® Coalition member organizations to capture activities conducted to promote one or more of the strategies that resonated with their organizational missions. This report will be used to identify gaps in implementation and opportunities for focusing efforts in the future.
