Evidence-Based Falls Prevention Program & Fall Risk Pyramid

View this diagram to learn about which evidence-based falls prevention programs are most appropriate for older adults with high, moderate, and/or low risk for a fall. Note: An individual’s level of falls risk may change and should be periodically reassessed. The CDC’s STEADI toolkit is an evidence based framework that can be used to assess risk. Individuals can move from program to program, depending on their individual needs and level of falls risks.

Detailed information about the programs in this diagram is available here.  This diagram was adapted from Mahoney, J & Shea, T.
