As an experienced martial artist, we would appreciate your feedback. We plan to use the information to prepare for consideration as an Evidence Based Falls Prevention Program. The information is anonymous and will not be linked to any individual.
The survey has three kinds of survey input:
There are YES/NO choices. These choices are set to "YES" (green). If you click on it, it will turn to "NO" (red).
Pull Down Menu (Age Group): Click on the down arrow and select one of the age groups.
Text Box: When more detailed information is asked for, please click on the text box and the box will open for your input.
After you complete the survey, click on "SUBMIT" and a Thank You page should open when you have successfully submitted the survey. If you need to report another fall, a link will lead you back here.
