The Strategies to Reduce Injuries and Develop Confidence in Elders (STRIDE) Study findings will be presented.  The aim of STRIDE is to evaluate the effectiveness of evidence-based strategies to reduce serious fall-related injuries by implementing individually tailored interventions to prevent fall-related injuries.  Learning Objectives: (1) describe the rationale, design, implementation, and results of the Strategies to Reduce Injuries and Develop Confidence in Elders (STRIDE) clinical trial; (2) discuss the STRIDE interdisciplinary, co-management approach to falls prevention; and (3) describe the policy implications of the STRIDE results.
