Falls are a costly, often preventable problem that increases with age. Community fall-prevention events provide an excellent route for community, student, and professional education. Community members reported high levels of satisfaction with the event (means 3.6 to 3.8 out of 4). Knowledge and awareness of community resources and the STEADI toolkit improved for both students and volunteer professionals. OT practitioners are ideally situated to help implement these events.
