The September/October issue of ASHA Access Audiology will focus on patient-centered outcomes in falls prevention. More than 1 million healthy adults in the United States sustain falls each year. With the U.S. population living longer and the aging population increasing, falls remain a threat and have a significant effect on the quality of life for older adults.
Research indicates that multifactorial exercise and home-based interventions significantly reduce the rate of falls. Using a patient-centered approach, including perspectives from patients and their families, may improve clinical outcomes and treatment success.
Access Audiology is an online publication that addresses the needs of professionals and students interested in audiology.
