Abstrakt

Fall risk assessment is important for fall prediction and fall prevention among older adults. In order to be applied in clinical practice, a fall risk assessment tool need to be regarded useful. The aim of this study was to evaluate healthcare professionals' user experience (UX) of the Fall Risk Assessment Tool (FRAT-up). Eight health care professionals working in a geriatric hospital department or in the primary health care system participated in a focus group and evaluated the tool. The healthcare professionals considered the FRAT-up tool to be novel and considered it useful in clinical practice. The tool can be used to get an extended knowledge and understanding of how to individually tailor a fall prevention intervention. It is suggested that for a better experience, the scale should be simplified and the tool should be integrated with the patient's medical record.
