Falls efficacy: The self-efficacy concept for falls prevention and management
Falls efficacy has been keenly studied in older people since the introduction of the Falls Efficacy Scale. Given the advances in research on falls efficacy, have we adequately understood this self-efficacy concept and have the most appropriate measure applied for the construct of interest? Falls efficacy can be viewed as a perceived ability to prevent and manage falls. Embracing this interpretation provides a broader paradigm toward helping older adults be more resilient against falls.
