dc.description.abstractLarge numbers of older people fall every year. Interdisciplinary intervention can reduce the risk of falling, and the use of integrated falls services for ambulance attended patients has been promoted. Non conveyance of fallers by ambulance staff is high but the triage system is informal. This study tested whether the introduction of an assessment tool would enable emergency ambulance staff to leave older fallers at home safely. https://emj.bmj.com/content/23/4/e31 This is an Open Access article distributed in accordance with the Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial (CC BY-NC 4.0) license, which permits others to distribute, remix, adapt, build upon this work non-commercially, and license their derivative works on different terms, provided the original work is properly cited and the use is non-commercial. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/ http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/emj.2005.032946
