Peer-led education has been shown to be an effective approach for raising community-dwelling older adults’ beliefs, knowledge and intention to engage in falls prevention strategies in a recent intervention trial. This article outlines the design and development of the intervention, which was a peer-led falls prevention education programme designed...
Article
Full-text available
Falls among older adults are a major problem. Despite considerable progress in falls prevention research, older adults often show low motivation to engage in recommended preventive strategies. Peer-led falls prevention education for older adults may have potential for bridging the research evidence-practice gap, thereby promoting the uptake of fall...

Health education is an important means of raising older people’s knowledge and awareness about falls prevention.

Falls among older people are a significant global socioeconomic problem, and older adults have low levels of self-perceived risk and a lack of willingness to take up existing falls prevention strategies. We believe that given the challenges of delivering falls prevention information, meaningful engagement of community members would create solutions...
Conference Paper

Background One third of community-dwelling adults over 65 years of age fall over each year. While there is strong evidence for effective falls-prevention strategies, there appears to be a gap between research and practice in terms of uptake and implementation of these strategies. One possible approach to addressing this gap is to use peers to deli...

Despite strong evidence for effective falls prevention strategies, the uptake and adherence by older people is low. Previous research has identified that older people have low levels of knowledge about falls prevention, find current education unappealing and high...

Questions

Question (1)
Question
I will be doing a control group of older people (without intervention) and was thinking of using its effect size to estimate the sample size of my intervention group further down the timeline. But won't the effect size of the control group (without intervention) be smaller and hence, potentially end up with a bigger than needed intervention group sample size estimate? I am not familiar with statistics and this is my rationale only. Would appreciate your suggestions and other considerations.
