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
