Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


This article examines risk factors for falls in the home with special consideration of psychotropic medications, and it recommends an evidence-based approach for fall prevention and management. Given that 85% of falls that do occur take place in the home (Abreu et al, 1998), the home care nurse is in a unique position to assess and intervene in the very context where falls emerge.
