The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) created the STEADI Tool Kit for health care providers with older adult patients who are at risk of falling or who may have fallen in the past.
The STEADI Tool Kit gives health care providers the information and tools they need to assess and address their older patients’ fall risk. The kit contains resources and tools that will help make fall prevention an integral part of health care providers’ clinical practice.
Safety-In-Place says – If your doctor, physician, physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner or other health care provider is familiar with STEADI, tell them that you are too. If they are not, then suggest that you would like to discuss your fall risk factors and direct them to the CDC STEADI Tool Kit at
