Preventing falls among people 65 years of age or older is a priority to promote healthy aging and reduce the number of hospitalizations, institutionalizations and years lived with disability. A preliminary study carried out at the Balaruc-les-Bains Thermal Center showed that one-third of people aged 65 are at significant risk of falling. Thermal establishments could therefore play a role in initiating measures to prevent falls among people aged 65 and over screened at risk.The ...
A randomized controlled trial to assess the effectiveness of an at-home comprehensive approach to preventing falls among adults 65 years and older at high risk for falls.
The goal of our project is to prevent patient falls by translating an individual patient's fall risk assessment into a decision support intervention that communicates fall risk status, and creates a tailored evidence-based plan of care that will be accessible to members of the care team to prevent falls.
The purpose of this study is to determine if a simple 'pick-list' menu applied to a handheld computer's time-motion program can be used to record reliably what a hospital-based doctor does while working a shift in the hospital. In this study reliability will be measured by comparing the data collected by at least two different observers recording data from the same hospitalist during the same period of time.
This study evaluates physiological measurements and their role in among falls in healthy elderly (65yr or older) or elderly suffering from osteoporosis. The study further seeks to evaluate if dancing can be used as training for preventing falls.
The objective of the proposed study is to reduce the incidence of falls and fall-related injuries among community-dwelling older adults by better utilizing community pharmacists to advise patients and physicians on medication management.
Intensive falls prevention programs have been shown to be effective in reducing falls; however, a number of practical programs, based in community setting have not been successful at reducing rate of falls. The purpose of this study was to test, in a randomized, controlled trial, the efficacy of this intermediate-intensity, individual, multifactorial model to reduce falls. It was hypothesized that more contacts would lead to greater adherence and efficacy in reducing falls.
This study is to investigate the effects of controlled whole-body vibration training on preventing falls among healthy population and people with multiple sclerosis.
The aim of this study is to develop an algorithm to automatically detect falls and near falls, in the elderly and in Parkinson's Disease patients. Subjects will arrive at the investigators' gait laboratory for assessment. A sub-group of the subjects, will receive a monitoring device, to be worn at home for three days.
The purpose of this single arm intervention study is to determine if the fall rate (as measured by falls per 1000 patient days) for patients designated "high fall risk" decreases with the use of the PUP™ [Patient is UP Falls Prevention System] when compared to the historical falls rate data for the prior 12 months from those same nursing units within the OSUWM Brain & Spine Hospital.
The long-term goals of the project are: 1) Preventing falls before they occur, by significantly improving our ability to monitor fall risk and develop early and sensitive markers for this risk, based on tripping and near falls and other physiological signs, 2) automatically diagnosing falls within seconds from the time of the incident, without the need for an emergency / distress button or making a phone call.
A falls prevention clinic opened in Montpellier (France) in 2015. The objective of the project is to evaluate whether the tailored multifactorial programme delivered in this real practice setting by a geriatrician, a podiatrist, a physiotherapist, and a occupational therapist would help prevent injuries in high-risk older patients using a 6-month pre-post intervention analysis.
The aim of this study is to describe and analyse the effects of multifactorial trial on the incidence of falls and injurious falls and on different risk factors of falling among the home-dwelling aged.
Background. Hospitalists predominantly engaged in inpatient care constitute a fundamental, poorly assessed change in medical care. The University of Texas Houston Pediatrics Department is developing a Hospitalist Division to staff Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital. Demonstration of its benefits and cost-effectiveness is important to secure adequate, sustained hospital or 3rd-party reimbursement. Design. Prospective step wedged quality improvement (QI) study with pediatric h...
At the Falls Prevention Clinic, each subject receives a comprehensive assessment of his or her individual risk factors for falling in addition to a comprehensive medical examination. Recommendations and appropriate followup tests and referrals are ordered for patients on an individual basis. Essential for medical advancement is the inquiry into information collected from medical records of older adults at high risk of falls and fracture. On such example is a retrospectiv...
The primary outcome is to assess the impact of the group program on falls prevention and patient education on home modifications and the implementation of technical assistance. This study aims to demonstrate that a group program on falls prevention and patient education will improve the acceptance and the implementation of recommendations on technical assistance and home modifications following discharge after an hospitalization for fall. The secondary outcome will measure th...
The purpose of this study is to test an intervention to introduce and implement proximity alarms on the risk of falls in hospitalized patients.
GAPcare (Geriatric Acute & Post-acute Care Coordination Program for Fall Prevention) is an early stage investigation that surveys older adults who present to the Emergency Department for any illness to determine the feasibility of an Emergency Department (ED)-based multidisciplinary intervention for preventing recurrent falls in older adults. In this observational study, older adults will be approached during routine clinical care in the ED and asked about prior falls, prior ex...
Due to the aging of the earth's population in the coming years, strategies for preventing falls in the elderly are of increasing research interest. Injuries due to falls have a direct impact on the quality of life of the elderly and are associated with very high costs for the healthcare system. However, few organized fall prevention interventions have been implemented in Greece, unlike other EU countries. The systematic recording of falls, the information and education of older...
With an aging population, an associated increase in the number of falls and fall injuries, there is a need to examine how health care services, such as home care, can best prevent falls among older people. This project will directly address this area by evaluating the effects and expense of an innovative approach to home care service delivery for older people at-risk for falls.
