La prévention des chutes chez les aînés ayant une déficience visuelle : document-synthèse de veille

Short description:

The prevalence of falls among seniors is high and represents a public health problem. Falls result from an interaction of multiple intrinsic (individual condition and behaviour) and extrinsic (environment) risk factors, among which are vision disorders. This brought us to ascertain the extent of knowledge and current evidence on the effectiveness of prevention measures from a visual point of view, and on the impact of rehabilitation on reducing falls among older adults with visual impairments.
