EASY screening enables safe entry into falls management program

The Exercise Assessment Screening for You (EASY) is a six-item screening tool that identifies risk factors for older adults and refers people for a physician’s release based on specific situations versus the recommendation to obtain a physician’s consent prior to any activity.
