Occupational therapy in the prevention and management of falls in adults

The aim of this practice guideline is to provide specific evidence-based recommendations that describe the most appropriate care or action to be taken by occupational therapists working with adults who have fallen, are at risk of falling or are fearful of falling.

The guideline has recommendations in three categories:

  • Keeping safe at home: reducing risk of falls
  • Keeping active: reducing fear of falling
  • Falls management: making it meaningful

Developed by the College of Occupational Therapists, UK.
