A Matter of Balance Class Data Collection and Evaluation Forms
We strongly encourage Master Trainer sites to register with the Matter of Balance Online Data Entry System to be a part of the national data collection. With support from the U.S. Administration on Aging and the National Council on Aging, Senior Services has developed a web-based system (developed on the widely-used Salesforce platform) that will permit all of us to continue to obtain high quality and timely data. Reports generated from this data are valuable for everyone -- participants, community sites, funders and policymakers. These reports are helping the evidence-based movement not only locally in your own communities, but nationally.
We have made the forms available for Master Trainers to download and print for use with the online data entry system. If you are not registered with the system, you may still use the forms to collect your own data.

The STEADI Toolkit
Now available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
The STEADI (Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths, & Injuries) Toolkit
Researchers at the CDC’s Injury Center have created the STEADI Tool Kit for healthcare providers who treat older adults who are at risk of falling or have fallen in the past. The tool kit offers information and tools to assess and address older patients’ fall risk. While the tool kit was created primarily for practices, it contains information that can be useful to all.
