ARCHETYPE Downton Fall Risk Index (DFRI) (openEHR-EHR-OBSERVATION.downton_fall_risk_index.v0)

ARCHETYPE IDopenEHR-EHR-OBSERVATION.downton_fall_risk_index.v0
ConceptDownton Fall Risk Index (DFRI)
DescriptionMultidimensional Tool to assess the risk of falling in the elderly.
UseUse to record the component values and total score of the DFRI risk assessment tool. The 'Medications' and 'Sensory deficits' data elements both allow multiple occurrences so that multiple values can be selected, if required. The values for each component are indicated in the description of each data element.
PurposeTo record the component values and total score of the DFRI risk assessment tool.
