The Fit (Falls Intervention Trials) Project was a randomized clinical trial of a program designed to reduce falls and their sequela among older people. The sample consisted of 100 persons who were age 60 and over, who lived in the Capital Region District (Victoria, B.C.) and who had experienced a fall in the preceding three months. The intervention consisted of a comprehensive risk assessment, individualized feedback about identified risks and a motivational video and booklet entitled “Head Over Heels”. Outcome measures included fall incidence, falls self-efficacy, fear of falling, social functioning, health service utilization and quality of life. While there were no statistically significant differences between the intervention and control groups on the key study variables, there were improvements in both groups between the beginning of the study and the six-month follow-up assessment. The paper discusses possible reasons for these findings and their implications for further research.
