The Division of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care is involved in research to help reduce injuries from falls in those individuals over 65 years of age. This project concentrates on the evaluation of the relationship between falls and medications which have been previously noted to be dangerous in the elderly population and includes a community outreach component to primary care providers to help them recognize the risks associated with medications in order to decrease hospital admissions and costs associated with fall injuries.
