    The first edition of the CDC Compendium of Effective Fall Interventions (2008) was developed to give public health practitioners and aging services providers detailed information about interventions that were scientifically proven to reduce falls in older adults. The first edition included 14 studies of effective falls interventions that were published before 2005. The second edition maintains the original format—study summaries, intervention descriptions, and summary tables—and provides this information for 8 additional fall intervention studies published between 2005 and 2009.

    The 22 interventions included in this second edition address a variety of audiences. Some are suitable for the very old (e.g., The Otago Exercise Programme), some are appropriate for specific populations such as the visually impaired (e.g., The VIP Trial), and others are designed for specific situations such as walking on ice and snow (e.g., Yaktrax® Walker). The Compendium will provide public health organizations and aging services providers with the information they need to identify effective fall interventions that are most appropriate for their communities’ particular needs, resources, and population.

    First edition, 2008, entitled: Preventing falls; what works : a CDC compendium of effective community-based interventions from around the world.
