Community service provider perceptions of implementing older adult fall prevention in Ontario, Canada: a qualitative study

Despite evidence for effective fall prevention interventions, measurable reductions in older adult (65 years) fall rates remain unrealized. This study aimed to describe the perceived barriers to and effective strategies for the implementation of evidence-based fall prevention practices within and across diverse community organizations.
This study is unique in that it included community service providers who are not generally thought to provide fall prevention services to older adults, such as retail business, community support, volunteer services, community foundations, recreation centres, and various  emergency services.
