Suggested answer to exercise: Nurse delivered home exercise programme, 6

Question 6: The main conclusion of the paper is that 'An individually tailored exercise programme delivered at home can prevent falls.' Do the data support this?

Suggested answer

Yes, they do support this. The exercise group had significantly fewer falls and significantly fewer falls resulting in serious injury.

As this is a randomised trial, we can conclude that the exercise programme caused this difference.
