In a nutshell: Given that falls are a major public health issue, and older people are frequently involved in them, trials such as fall prevention should actively involve them. But many refuse to participate, and this article explores the reasons why. These include mobility problems, or at the other end of the scale people consider themselves ‘too healthy’ for it to apply to them. Anticipation of such reasons may lead to an improvement in participation rates.
