The Massachusetts Falls Prevention Coalition was founded in 2006 to raise awareness among senior care providers and the public of the harmful impact of falls and the availability of successful prevention strategies.
More than 75 organizations in the state have joined the Coalition and participated in its work to promote legislation, disseminate research findings, conduct educational programs, and work on quality improvement initiatives. Member organizations include health care institutions, government agencies, advocates, researchers, community-based senior care agencies, and others.
