Doctor in the House: Fear of Falling

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. In a recently published study, Malaysian and Singapore researchers found that older persons with osteoarthritis were more likely to fall if they had a fear of falling (FoF) and psychological symptoms. One of the co-authors of the study, consultant geriatrician Assoc Prof Dr Tan Maw Pin, joins Dr George Lee to discuss the findings.
