An app to help clinicians manage fall risk in patients.
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 to mitigate fall risk
• Track your patient’s risk management progress
Fall Prevention is a clinical app that leads you through screening questions and tests to identify and stratify fall risk in your patients; recommends further assessments, interventions, education, and resources to mitigate fall risk based on the latest clinical research; and provides the option to email results for each patient screened.
Fall Prevention was developed by a partnership between Shubert Consulting and Evidence in Motion. The app is based on the STEADI tool, released in 2012 by the CDC to implement standardized fall risk screening practices.
