NCT ID: NCT04313062 Not yet recruiting - Accidental Fall Clinical Trials

Falling Prevention Comprehensive Model for Older People Self-caring

Start date: April 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Falls in elderly people are a public health problem and in Chile there's a deficit regarding prevention strategies focused on high functioning older people who live in the community. The aim of the study is to design, implement and evaluate a comprehensive model based on house calls and oriented towards falling prevention (PM ACTIVAS' model). We will perform a clinical trial in a district of Santiago, Chile to evaluate this model. Our hypothesis are that people who received the educational intervention following the PM ACTIVAS' model will: fall less frequently, improve their management on falls risk factors present at home, and have a higher falls risk perception than the control group. We also expect that it will be possible to establish cut off points in a valid and reliable scale to assess the presence of falls risk factors in elderly people.
