Falls risk for Older People in the community: FROP-Com

Share this article

The Falls Risk for Older People in the Community (FROP-Com and FROP-Com Screen) are tools used in the community for assessment or screening of falls risk.

The FROP-Com is an assessment tool and involves rating 13 falls risk factors, usually on a scale of 0-3.

FROP-Com Screen uses three items that best predict falls risk in a 12 month period. It has high retest and inter-rater reliability, and a moderate ability to predict falls in older people presenting to an emergency department after a fall.
