Description/Abstract

A literature review was conducted to facilitate allied health professionals' implementation of the recommendations made by the Prevention of Falls Network Europe (ProFaNE) (Yardley et al 2007a) on promoting older people's engagement in activities to prevent falls. The falls prevention literature was searched for relevant papers to aid allied health professionals' choice of strategies and to inspire ideas about how to implement
ProFaNE's recommendations in everyday practice. Suggestions for each of the six ProFaNE recommendations are made, which may in turn promote older people's adherence to falls prevention interventions.
