Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to identify in literature the factors that may contribute to increased adherence and that may facilitate the implementation of falls preventive exercise at home. The design of this study was a descriptive review. Data collection was conducted by a search in the database PRIMO at two occasions. Data was also collected by manual, secondary search. A total of 16 studies were included in the review. The results show that the ways of describing and collecting the adherence in the studies were insufficient and the results for adherence can therefore not be compared. Evidence, context, facilitation and motivation are important factors when applying the intervention in practice. Facilitating factors for implementing falls preventive exercise at home can be divided into three different areas. These areas are the character of the exercise, external support and support for motivation and inner support. The conclusion is that falls preventive exercise at home is evidence based and should be applied within appropriate context and with the aid of facilitating factors. The intervention is to be considered a part of falls preventive and rehabilitating actions at home.
