Designing the home falls and accidents screening tool (HOME FAST) : selecting the items

Author: Mackenzie, Lynette

Summary: The Home Falls and Accidents Screening Tool (HOME FAST) was developed as a screening instrument for use in a community preventive care trial for older people. This paper describes the first stage of the development of this screening tool. The objectives of the study were (i) to review existing home safety measures, (ii) to field test an instrument containing a pool of home safety items with the goal of identifying those hazards associated with falls in the home and (iii) to select the items for inclusion in a 25-item tool using an expert panel.
