Occupational therapy in the prevention and management of falls in adults - Practice Guideline from the College of Occupational Therapists is now available and can be downloaded from the cot website (.pdf).
The introduction summarises what this publication hopes to achieve:
"The aim of this practice guideline is to provide specific evidence-based recommendations that describe the most appropriate care or action to be taken by occupational therapists working with adults who have fallen, are at risk of falling or are fearful of falling. The recommendations are intended to be used alongside the therapist’s clinical expertise in their assessment of need and implementation of interventions. The practitioner is, therefore, ultimately responsible for the interpretation of this evidence-based guideline in the context of their specific circumstances and service users."
