In a nutshell: Given that falls in older people are so common and can be devastating and processing patients who present with falls can be challenging for non-specialists, this article has been prepared as a reference guide covering medical competencies on falls. The emphasis is on the acute setting, and covers important areas such as epidemiology of falls, definition and classification, and other such topics. It includes the latest developments in falls prevention research.
