Research output: Contribution to journalLetterOtherpeer-review


We thank Wilson and colleagues for sharing their finding that baseline use of PPIs was not associated with 12-month mortality among 602 participants in a falls prevention study. As highlighted by Wilson and colleagues, prescribing practices and organization of care for older people often differ within and between countries. We agree that the specialized nature of our study cohorts limits extrapolation to other populations.
