In a nutshell: This study aimed to examine the relationship between the number of participants using fall prevention-related programmes and community fall rates. It was conducted in Japan using community-dwelling older adults to identify areas with high fall rates, and then a survey was conducted to find information on fall prevention programmes. Those areas with lower fall rates had significantly more people enrolled in prevention programmes than those with higher fall rates.
