Over the past 20 years, falls have been increasing despite everyone's best prevention efforts. In fact, we have doubled the mortality rate for falls in those over 75 years of age in the last decade. Why is this? Falls among older adults are changing, but the way we are addressing them isn't ... until now. Learn why and understand how research points us in a new direction for fall prevention.
