Hi, I am a BSN student. For my community assessment I have to use the MAPIT tool. My community if interest is 80yr and older who live in assisted living facilities. I want to determine how falls affect this community in being able to get access to clinics preventative services or assess to care.

Dear Jennifer
thank you for your question.
In CTB, Chapter 2. “Other Models for Promoting Community Health and Development”, there is a whole Section devoted to MAP-IT, Section 14. "MAP-IT: A Model for Implementing Healthy People 2020", on the web page
Perhaps there is not a specific paragraph about falls and their impact; nevertheless, there are a lot of examples and suggested tools, so we think that you will find some ideas for your community with elderly people.
Many wishes for your work!
