The Ontario Fall Prevention Collaborative (OFPC), Knowledge Resource Working Group has developed a draft document to help health systems partners and professionals in locating the right screening or assessment tools for fall prevention for older adults in Ontario. The purpose of this document is to provide a first version of what currently exists as screening or assessment tools for falls in older adults within Ontario. However, further work needs to be done around recommendations from the Ontario Fall Prevention Collaborative on fall prevention screening and assessment tools with high impact for the intended target population, broken down by sector. Further engagement with various provincial and national stakeholders is underway, and an updated phase 2 version of this resource document will be shared upon that time.
