Falls Prevention Awareness Day is coming September 22, making now a great time to check out falls-related resources on APTA's recently expanded PTNow evidence-based practice center.

Here's a quick take on just some of the falls-related resources available at PTNow. (Editor's note: PTNow content was incorporated in to apta.org in June 2020.)

APTA also offers information on falls at its Balance and Falls webpage. Resources include continuing education courses, tips on developing consumer events on falls, and links to other organizations.
