In a nutshell: This paper investigates how to identify the smallest worthwhile effect (SWE) or exercise-based programmes to prevent falls in older people, the SWE being the smallest effect which justifies the costs, risks and inconvenience of an intervention. The study uses two methodological approaches to estimate the SWE of exercise interventions, and participants are to be interviewed in person at different points in the study.
