The Effects of an Education Program on Home Renovation for Fall Prevention

Published

A recent Korean study showed that stated behavioral intentions towards home renovationcould be changed by education. For instance, the experimental group increased more than that of the control and comparative groups and a considerable proportion of the experimental group showed actual behavioral changes in housing improvements; for instance, repairing handrails on staircases or applying anti-slip spray to their bathroom floors etc. The results demonstrate that the
provision of appropriate education could be used as a crucial intervention for fall
prevention because it can encourage confidence and preventive behaviors on falls.
