Erratum

Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contains an error within Table 5 of the results section. Within the column “Intervention group” the number of “Indoor falls” was incorrectly written as 2, but should in fact be 202. The correct version of Table 5 can be found below.

Results of mixed-effects logistic and negative binomial regression analyses

95 % CI = 95 % confidence interval; OR = odds ratio mixed-effects logistics regression; IRR = incidence rate ratio obtained via negative binomial regression

aModel adjusted for baseline score measurement and level of concerns about falls, age, gender, perceived general health, and falls in the past 6 months

bAnalyses were performed with a Poisson distribution. This distribution of fall events accounts for over dispersion and incorporates both number of falls and time (weeks) of follow-up; herefore, all available data was used
