It Takes a Village, a Multidisciplinary, Multilevel Evaluation (SIP 14-020)
SIP 14-020, It Takes a Village, a Multidisciplinary, Multilevel Evaluation
The project addressed the urgent need to create systems that support the widespread dissemination, implementation, and adoption of evidence-based fall prevention programs in clinical and community settings. During the 3-year Village evaluation, three aims were achieved to identify essential elements of effective fall prevention programming at the state and national levels: (1) evaluation of the impact of programs as they are scaled statewide; (2) technical assistance to bring programs to scale; and (3) dissemination of findings to key stakeholders. The ultimate impact of the initiative was to improve the health and functioning of the growing population of older Americans at-risk for falling.
