In a nutshell: People with intellectual disabilities fall more often than the general populace, but there is no targeted screening for them. This study aimed to develop, implement and evaluate a falls clinic for this group of people. It showed that more time and attention for multifactorial and multidisciplinary treatment of people with intellectual disabilities is necessary, and implementation on a larger scale would enable investigation of the effectiveness of the clinic on this population.
