Publication type: Journal article

In a nutshell: Trials have demonstrated that Tai Ji Quan can reduce falls and associated injuries, but to have a population-level impact this must be translated into community programmes that meet the needs and abilities of their populations. The programmes must be adapted to fit into existing community structures, disseminated through multiple delivery channels, adopted and implemented broadly by organizations, and institutionalized to ensure sustainability.
