Using the AFRIS to guide your interventions

The AFRIS (Attitudes to Falls Related Intervention Scale) and the FES-I (Falls Efficacy Scale-International), developed by Workpackage 4 of ProFaNE, led by Lucy Yardley and Chris Todd, have been successfully used by Mansdorf and colleagues in the USA as part of an internet based behavioural intervention to reduce falls in long term care facilities. They showed a reduction in documented falls by 52% along with substantial reductions in staff ratings of risk and burden. The FES-I and the AFRIS are available freely on profane.eu.org.
