Cahall M, Jerome RN, Powers J. The impact of a literature consult service on geriatric clinical care and training in falls prevention. J Med Libr Assoc. 2008 April; 96(2): 88–100.

On a routine visit to his office to discuss his current needs for clinical evidence, he requests that you analyze the literature on effective interventions to reduce accidental falls in older persons.
