In a nutshell: This study compared the use of fall prevention strategies by people with multiple sclerosis who do or don’t fall. It found that a higher proportion of fallers than non-fallers used strategies such as turning on lights at home, asking for help and talking to a healthcare professional about preventing falls. However, both groups rarely used this latter category or enquired about which medications might increase fall risk.
