Description: Recognizing the enormous impact that falls have on seniors and the state health system, health workers in Washington have been making falls prevention a priority. Through community partnerships, education, training and outreach programs, Washington injury prevention advocates are spreading the message that falls do not have to be the norm for people as they age and that health workers can play an important role in preventing them.
