Finding Balance Algorithm

An Approach to the Prevention of Falls in Older Adults - For Primary Care Physicians

A Multifactorial Approach to Fall Prevention

The development of this algorithm has been a true collaboration of passionate, dedicated individuals working in the area of seniors’ falls prevention. We would like to especially acknowledge the work of Dr. David Hogan on which this algorithm is based.

This algorithm is a living guide that will continue to evolve as new research, best practices and resources are available. There are links to practitioner tools and resources for clients throughout the document. We hope it will be useful in your assessment and management of seniors’ falls.
