In this issue, a systematic review that will serve as the basis for the USPSTF recommendations on fall prevention examines the benefits and harms of fall prevention interventions and an accompanying article describes the USPSTF's efforts to make its reviews and recommendations relevant to older adults and the primary care providers who care for them. This editorial discusses these articles and how the USPSTF has taken a major step toward ensuring that its work remains relevant.
