In a nutshell: A simple, two item screening tool has been developed in Australia, measuring people over 70 years old with a history of falls for their physical status, medical and fall history and use of community services. The tool can accurately discriminate between fallers and non-fallers, and could possibly identify high-risk individuals who may benefit from further help after discharge.
