Coordinated care plan to prevent older adult falls
  • Description:
    The Coordinated Care Plan to Prevent Older Adult Falls offers primary care providers, practices, and healthcare systems a framework for managing their older patients’ fall risk. The Plan was developed by fall prevention experts who were early adopters of STEADI. Working together, these early adopters and CDC hope to provide other primary care providers and their teams with tips and strategies needed to integrate and evaluate their STEADI-based clinical fall prevention programs. The purpose of this plan is to offer practical suggestions to incorporate and evaluate fall prevention in primary care settings; thereby, reducing falls among community-dwelling older adults. Although the Coordinated Care Plan is developed for primary care, STEADI-based programs can be implemented in different healthcare settings, and steps described in this plan can be adapted accordingly.

    This plan compliments the CDC STEADI: Evaluation Guide for Older Adult Clinical Fall Prevention Programs. The Evaluation Guide is adapted from CDC’s Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health, and describes key steps to measure and report on the success of implementing a STEADI-based clinical fall prevention program. Evaluating the implementation and use of STEADI-based programs can help providers and organizations increase the quality of care provided to their older patients, and demonstrate program-related successes and areas for improvement.
