Clinical Summary: Falls and Parkinson’s

The Evidence-Based Practice Theme Working Group has condensed a wealth of expertise into a concise clinical summary which outlines an approach to assessment and management of falls - identification of people falling (or at risk of falling), ruling out generic risk factors that affect the elderly in general, 'ruling in' Parkinson's-specific risk factors, considering unmodifiable factors, assessing osteoporosis risk and reassessing interventions.
