Intervention to Reduce Falls Incidence
EFFECTIVENESS OF A MULTIFACTORIAL INTERVENTION PROGRAM TO REDUCE FALLS INCIDENCE AMONG COMMUNITY-LIVING ELDERLY PEOPLE

The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of a multifactorial intervention program to prevent falls among the elderly as compared to a brief intervention.

The objective of this research is to verify if a simple multifactorial intervention program that is applicable in PC settings is more effective to decrease fall incidence than a brief advice for community-living people aged 70 or older.
