Consumer & Communication Strategies

If you have experience with psychological treatments or health education for older adults, we would like your input on a review!

Skills / interests: Consumer (public, patient, carer) input

Would you be interested in helping us with this article focused on psychological interventions and education for older adults to prevent falls?

I am looking for a consumer who would be willing to peer review this Cochrane systematic review “Psychological and educational interventions for preventing falls in older people living in the community.” Cochrane considers a consumer to be a person with experience of the condition (in this case, being an older adult), either as a patient or as a carer/family member of a patient. From a consumer perspective, we are interested if the language of the review, especially the language used in the Plain Language Summary, is accessible and if it feels relevant for older adults, such that it will be helpful to patients and carers with healthcare decision making.

While you are welcome to provide feedback on any aspect of the review, you can focus your attention on the summary sections. Our aim is for this to be a manageable task, that does not overburden consumer reviewers.

Thank you in advance for considering!
