PreventFalls.net is part of a much larger world seeking to reduce falls. Researchers are an important part of this effort.

Each Issue of PreventFalls.net will present recent studies that have implications for safety practices and link them to evidence-based lifesavers. The aim is to suggest what you can do, based on this recent research, to be safer.
