In a nutshell: This is a systematic review and meta-analysis designed to investigate the impact of falls prevention programmes on older adults who are returning home to live after being discharged from hospital. It uses peer-reviewed articles and grey literature to show that falls interventions provided a positive improvement in patients’ participation levels, finding a causal association. The effect size was small, but the study suggests that participation needs to be considered in future falls prevention research.
