A Self-Guided Online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to Reduce Fear of Falling in Older People: a Randomised Controlled Trial

Traditional face-to-face cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has been successful at reducing fear of falling (FOF) in older people but can be labour-intensive and costly. Online CBT has been suggested as a cost-effective alternative but has not yet been tested in the context of FOF. This study evaluates the effectiveness of a readily available, self-guided and generalised online CBT program (myCompass) on reducing FOF in older people.
