The North Carolina Falls Prevention works to reduce the number of injuries and deaths from falls using the following strategies:
  • Building and strengthening regional/local falls prevention coalitions.
  • Developing and disseminating evidence based falls prevention programs.
  • Increasing access, timeliness and understanding of falls prevention data.
  • Ensuring that each community or county has an array of resources essential for falls prevention.
  • Educating and communicating with key constituencies about falls prevention.
  • Cultivating relationships with key new partners in NC.
  • Using policy as a prevention tool.
