CDC's Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths, & Injuries (STEADI)

The STEADI Initiative was developed by the CDC and offers a coordinated approach to implementing falls prevention. STEADI consists of three core elements:

  • Screen patients for fall risk,

  • Assess modifiable risk factors, and

  • Intervene to reduce risk by using effective clinical and community strategies.

Combined, these elements can have a substantial impact on reducing falls, improving health outcomes, and reducing healthcare expenditures.
