Long term fall prevention behaviour after participation in the Stepping On fall prevention program
This study aims to:
- Document ongoing participation in evidence-based fall prevention interventions and behaviours in Stepping On participants six months after program completion, and
- Determine factors associated with ongoing participation and non-adherence to fall prevention interventions and behaviours
Participants in the Stepping On program commencing in 2014 will be invited to take part in this project.
People who agree to take part in the study will be asked to complete two questionnaires at two different times.
The first will be completed at the commencement of their participation in the Stepping On program to measure perceptions of the program and feelings about how likely it is that the program will be of benefit to them.
The second questionnaire will be completed six months after completion of the Stepping On program and will document ongoing participation in any programs or behaviour change strategies to reduce risk of falling.
