Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths, and Injuries (STEADI) Toolkit for Healthcare Providers
- Service providers are crucial towards helping patients and clients become aware of the threats and risks posed by falls. You play an important role in helping patients and clients to improve health and wellness, as well as decreasing their risks of falls-related injuries and death. The STEADI Toolkit provides resources and tools to integrate fall prevention into your clinical practice or organization.
- STEADI materials can be used to assess, treat, and refer older adult patients/clients based on their fall risk. Materials include screening and assessment tools, fact sheets, medication review tools, and educational materials (posters, brochures). These materials are designed for older adults, in addition to their friends and family.
