REDUCING FALLS BY IMPROVING KNOWLEDGE TRANSLATION: A MIXED-METHODS STUDY TO INCORPORATE FALLS PREVENTION BEST-PRACTICE EVIDENCE INTO OSTEOARTHRITIS CARE
Grant number: 1151089 | Funding period: 2018 - 2021
Over 50% of people with osteoarthritis (OA) will fall. Resources exist to assist clinicians in the management of OA, but give little or no attention to falls.The association between OA and falls supports the need to incorporate falls prevention strategies into routine OA care. This project aims to reduce falls and fall-related harm in people with OA by creating a list of recommendations for preventing falls that can be incorporated into current OA resources and routine OA care.
