World Guidelines for Falls Prevention and Management for Older Adults: A Global Initiative
These guidelines were developed by the World Falls Task Force, which assembled 96 multidisciplinary experts from 39 countries across 5 continents, with representation from 36 scientific and academic societies, including the BGS.
The World Guidelines for Falls Prevention and Management for Older Adults: A Global Initiative are published by Age and Ageing and aim to provide a framework and expert recommendations to healthcare and other professionals working with older adults on how to identify and assess the risk of falls.
They recommend which interventions, alone or in combination, should be offered to older people as part of a person-centred approach to preventing and managing falls.
