Abstract

Date Presented 4/18/2015

In this mixed-methods study, we compare perceived falls risks and strategies used for outdoor fall prevention among seniors above and below 75 yr of age. The results can help occupational therapists (OTs) design targeted fall-prevention programs. Two professional priority areas are addressed: health and wellness as well as productive aging.
