A randomized trial of a multifactorial strategy to prevent serious fall injuries.

Bhasin S, Gill TM, Reuben DB, et al. N Engl J Med. 2020;383(2):129-140.

This study randomized primary care practices across ten health care systems to evaluate the effectiveness of a multifactorial intervention to prevent falls with injury, which included risk assessment and individualized plans administered by specially trained nurses. The intervention did not result in a significantly lower rate of serious fall injury compared to usual care.
