Translational Research to Identify Factors Related to Older Adult Use of Evidence-Based Falls Prevention Programs.

The ultimate goal of this translational study is to decrease the incidence of falls among older adults by: (1) better understanding factors that may limit the potential impact of existing evidence-based falls prevention programs, and (2) using this information to make strategic recommendations concerning the design and marketing of evidence-based programs to achieve greater use and impact.
