    • How do we find a fall prevention program that best meets the needs of our clients?

    • How can we know that this program works and will achieve the desired results?

    • What resources will be needed to support it?

    • What partners should we consider to help us offer the program?

    • How can we support and sustain the program into the future?

    This revision of the 2008 publication, Preventing Falls: How to Develop Community- based Fall Prevention Programs for Older Adults, will improve your organization’s ability to reach out to the older members of your community as well as enhance

    your capacity to implement and maintain effective fall prevention programs.
