Each year, 1 out of 3 adults aged 65 and over falls. A third of those falls result in moderate to severe injuries that can lead to further declines in health and loss of independence.
The aim of STRIDE is to evaluate the effectiveness of evidence-based strategies to reduce serious fall-related injuries by implementing individually tailored interventions to prevent fall-related injuries.
STRIDE will enroll 6000 older adults (aged 75 years and older) who are at risk of falls. Patients will be followed for an average of 2.2 years to determine if the intervention has an effect on serious fall-related injuries
The STRIDE Study partners with patients and caregivers, to ensure the patient voice is heard in all aspects of the Study.
