In a nutshell: Total joint arthroplasty patients are at increased risk for post-operative falls, but by working as a team, people of different specialities can provide a multidisciplinary approach that is associated with greater success in implementing interventions and reducing fall rates. These interventions are an integral part of patient care, and are necessary for long-term changes. Multicomponent interventions addressing specific risk factors are also essential to a successful fall reduction programme.
