The Good News About Fall Prevention

Screen Capture of the film“The Good News About Fall Prevention” is a community education video produced by SPU nursing students to address a serious public health problem among older adults.

Falls are one of the five leading causes of hospitalization in Washington, with more than 12,500 admissions in 2006. In the next 20 years, Washington's population of adults over 65 years of age will double. Washington State Department of Health is putting effort into a statewide educational campaign and will use this eight-minute, consumer-oriented video to give advice to older adults on how they can reduce their risk of having a fall.
