In view of the high medical costs associated with falls the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has developed the Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths and Injuries (STEADI) methodology (2527). While the algorithm has a number of positive features it is complex to use and more time consuming than can be undertaken in an average general practitioner visit. For this reason we have developed the simple F3ALLS approach to fall prevention.
