Cognitive behavioural therapy-based intervention to reduce fear of falling in older fallers attending a community falls service: Therapy development and randomised controlled trial

Falls cause fear and loss of confidence in many older people, as a result of which they become less active, more isolated and increasingly frail. To overcome this, we aim to develop a specifically targeted cognitive behavioural therapy intervention for older people with excessive fear of falling. We will teach staff in our community falls service to perform the therapy and see if it helps those with undue fear of falling. Success will be assessed in several ways. The first component will be the development of a comprehensive and acceptable CBT intervention. Fear of falling will be assessed by questionnaires. We will also examine the programme's impact on fall rates and injuries as well as assessing measures of strength and balance related to falls risks.
