A recent systematic review examines the possible benefits (or harms) of multifactorial and multiple component interventions for preventing falls in older people living in the community.
“Multifactorial interventions may reduce the rate of falls compared with usual care or attention control. However, there may be little or no effect on other fall-related outcomes. Multiple component interventions, usually including exercise, may reduce the rate of falls and risk of falling compared with usual care or attention control”.
There is insufficient evidence to assess the possible effects of such approaches on fragility fractures or hospital admissions.
