Executive Summary

The Framework is underpinned by evidence from research and draws on knowledge and experience gained by the falls prevention community in Scotland over the last four years. It identifies and describes key actions for health and social care services at each of the four stages of the pathway. These actions represent the minimum standard of care an older person should expect to receive, regardless of where and when they present to services. The Framework provides a road map for developing or enhancing a falls pathway.
