In a nutshell: This study looked into whether depression predicted less improvement in fear of falling and falls efficacy in older adults attending a fall prevention programme it found that there was no association between depression and change in fear of falling, but there was a correlation between improvement in depressive symptoms and improvement in falls efficacy, which raises the question of whether a cognitive behavioural intervention that simultaneously targets both depression and falls efficacy would be a useful component of a FPP.
