These recommendations published by The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) incorporate data obtained from a literature review of the most recent studies available at the time. As with all clinical reference resources, they reflect the best understanding of the science of medicine at the time of publication, but they should be used with the clear understanding that continued research may result in new knowledge and recommendations. These Recommendations are intended for general information only, are not medical advice, and do not replace professional medical care and physician advice, which always should be sought for any specific condition.


The AGS considers guidelines 5 years old and older to be no longer active. These inactive guidelines or recommendations have not been reviewed or updated by the AGS and the conclusions and recommendations in the guideline may not be current.

These articles include the American Geriatrics Society/British Geriatrics Society (AGS/BGS) Clinical Practice Guideline: Prevention of Falls in Older Person (2010), as well as a summary and list of these guidelines. The Guideline provides additional discussion of the guideline process and includes the recommendations, algorithm, and acknowledgments. Related content for patients is also provided.
