In a nutshell: The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy originally launched guidelines for preventing falls in older people back in 1998, the first to be released with a sole focus on physiotherapy. These have now been updated due to the evidence and guidelines published in the meantime. The new guidelines emphasise steps that can be taken to prevent falls, including specific recommendations on exercise programmes.
