Reflection

Identify the ongoing needs of the community

Any one program or strategy is unlikely to address all the factors in the community that influence injuries from falls prevention.  You may find that your program is successful in its intent but is not having the impact it could have because there are influences that are not addressed.  For example, you may find that your community now has safer walkways and buildings, but that individuals in your community do won’t use the facilities without a partner. You may decide to expand your efforts by moving to address these attitudes through individual or support relationship interventions.
