Publication type: Journal article

In a nutshell: This is related to the previous post, highlighting the fact that there is plenty of evidence to help promote strategies to prevent falls in older adults, but these are not being translated into changes in public health practice. The gap between theoretical evidence and practical implementation therefore grows ever wider. Public health would greatly benefit from narrowing this gap.
