    Objective: To identify risk factors for falls in ambulatory health care.
    Methodology: We carried out the research in a general practitioner’s clinic in the period from January 2021 to June 2021. The file consisted of 937 respondents who completed a preventive examination. We used the fall risk screening test and the Morse Fall Scale. Data were processed using multiple regression analysis (p < 0.05).
    Results: The average increasing age of patients is the most significant fall risk factor. We found a statistical dependence between age (≥ 75 years) and the risk of falling. Gender is not statistically significant. We identified an average risk of falling in the our sample. Comorbidity and medication were the most frequently occurring risk factors for falls in the research sample.
    Conclusion: Fall risk assessment in ambulatory care will become an essential part of comprehensive care. We consider the implementation of this nurse competence to be an activity of a preventive nature with a focus on the creation of programs for the prevention of falls in all forms of health care, including patient education.
