12. Environmental and behavioural interventions for reducing physical activity limitation and preventing falls in older people with visual impairment. (Abstract)

Environmental and behavioural interventions for reducing physical activity limitation and preventing falls in older people with visual impairment. Impairment of vision is associated with a decrease in activities of daily living. Avoidance of physical activity in older adults with visual impairment can lead to functional decline and is an important risk factor for falls. The rate of falls and fractures is higher in older people with visual impairment than in age-matched visually normal older (...) people. Possible interventions to reduce activity restriction and prevent falls include environmental and behavioral interventions.We aimed to assess the effectiveness and safety of environmental and behavioral interventions in reducing physical activity limitation, preventing falls and improving quality of life amongst visually impaired older people.We searched CENTRAL (including the Cochrane Eyes and Vision Trials Register) (Issue 2, 2020), Ovid MEDLINE, Embase and eight other databases to 4

16. A Randomized Trial of a Multifactorial Strategy to Prevent Serious Fall Injuries. Full Text available with Trip Pro

A Randomized Trial of a Multifactorial Strategy to Prevent Serious Fall Injuries. Injuries from falls are major contributors to complications and death in older adults. Despite evidence from efficacy trials that many falls can be prevented, rates of falls resulting in injury have not declined.We conducted a pragmatic, cluster-randomized trial to evaluate the effectiveness of a multifactorial intervention that included risk assessment and individualized plans, administered by specially trained (...) nurses, to prevent fall injuries. A total of 86 primary care practices across 10 health care systems were randomly assigned to the intervention or to enhanced usual care (the control) (43 practices each). The participants were community-dwelling adults, 70 years of age or older, who were at increased risk for fall injuries. The primary outcome, assessed in a time-to-event analysis, was the first serious fall injury, adjudicated with the use of participant report, electronic health records, and claims
