On December 5-6, 2007, more than 140 invited stakeholders from various fields gathered in Long Beach, California to map out next steps on how California can better address the serious problem of falls in a rapidly growing older adult population. The Summit Goals were to: 1) increase knowledge about state of the art fall prevention efforts; 2) develop strategies to sustain and replicate promising fall prevention programs; and 3) generate recommendations to improve policies in the areas of Community Programs, Education and Training, Health Care, Healthy Lifestyles and Recreation, and Safe Housing and Communities. Due to the large nature of the proceedings, the files have been divided into sections.
- I. Executive Summary
- II. The California Fall Prevention Infrastructure
- III. Vision for the Future
- IV. Statewide Strategy for Action
- V. Opportunities and Challenges
- VI. Next Steps
