A correction and a clarification need to be made to the references in this Research paper (BMJ 2012;345:e4547, doi:10.1136/bmj.e4547). The study cited in reference 15 was not (as stated) published in the BMJ, but in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. The full reference should have read: Davis JC, Ashe MC, Liu-Ambrose T, Khan KM, Robertson MC, Marra CA. Does a home based strength and balance programme in people aged ≥ 80 years provide the best value for money to prevent falls? A systematic review of economic evaluations of falls prevention interventions. Br J Sports Med 2010;44:80-9.

A clarification is also required to update reference 13, which was initially an unpublished document but has since been published by Sydney University Press. Reference 13 should now more accurately read: Clemson L, Fiatarone Singh M, Munro J. Lifestyle-integrated Functional Exercise (LiFE): reducing falls and improving function. Participant manual. Sydney University Press, 2012.
