Osteoporosis LTC Recommendations

4. Multifactoral Interventions

What Are Multifactoral Interventions?

​Multifactorial interventions are any combination of interventions that are tailored to an individual’s risk to reduce falls. Such interventions may include:​

Medication Reviews

Assessment of Environmental Hazards

Assistive Devices

Exercise

Management of Urinary Incontinence

Educational Interventions Directed to Staff

For all residents, we suggest multifactorial interventions that are individually tailored to reduce the risk of falls and fractures.
