The CDC Seeks Feedback on to Improve Fall Prevention Services

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is seeking insight from physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners to inform and improve fall prevention services. See the flyer here and below for additional details.

CDC Falls Prevention Study Needs Your Help!

  1. Do you provide primary care to adult patients of all ages in an outpatient setting?
  2. Are some of your patients older adults (65 years or older)?
  3. Are you willing to provide your perspective in a short phone interview?

If so, you would be a perfect fit for our falls prevention project!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Altarum Institute want to support providers in preventing falls among older adult patients as part of the STEADI (Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths, and Injuries) initiative. Your perspective as a provider will inform STEADI program messaging, including how to raise awareness of the STEADI program, the importance of managing medications to reduce falls, and clinical guidelines and recommendations.

Got 30 minutes? Schedule a phone interview at your convenience in December or January. Phone interview participants will receive a $25 Amazon gift card.

If you are interested in participating, please reply to with your full name, phone number, and availability (best day of week/time of day) or call toll-free 1-877-828-5101.

If you know primary care physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who would be interested, please feel free to pass the message along!
