MMWR falls

A recent CDC report, Deaths from Fall-related Traumatic Brain Injury — United States, 2008–2017, found that in most states the rate of fall-related TBI deaths has increased significantly and the country as a whole saw a 17% increase in fall-related TBI deaths from 2008 to 2017. The most notable increases in fall-related TBI deaths were observed among persons 75 years of age and older and persons living in the most rural counties. This report highlights the importance of expanding efforts to stem the continued growth in the rate of fall-related TBIs among at-risk groups.
