STEADI Stopping Elderly Accidents Deaths & Injuries - CDC
The STEADI Initiative offers a coordinated approach to implementing the American and British Geriatrics Societies’ Clinical Practice Guideline for fall prevention. STEADI consists of three core elements: screen patients for fall risk, assess modifiable risk factors, and intervene to reduce risk by using effective clinical and community strategies. Combined, these elements can have a substantial impact on reducing falls, improving health outcomes, and reducing healthcare expenditures.
STEADI Toolkit includes:
- basic information about falls, screening options, case studies, conversation starters
- information on medications linked to falls, standardized gait and balance assessment tests
- online trainings that offer continuing education
- educational brochures about fall prevention
