This conference focuses on falls prevention and management in older people with a focus on ensuring effective and resilient falls prevention activity during and beyond Covid-19. Sessions throughout the day will focus on the impact of the pandemic on older people, activity and falls, developing falls prevention and healthy ageing, understanding human factors in falls prevention, meeting the psychological needs of those who have fallen or are at risk of falls, improving falls education and awareness, effective personalised multidisciplinary assessment, reducing falls on the ward, falls and mental health including delirium prevention, medication management and improving secondary prevention. The conference will also discuss key elements in the reduction of falls in your service including strength, balance and exercise promotion, managing underlying health issues, developing personalized falls prevention care plans, frailty presenting as falls and improving the systems for falls monitoring, investigation and learning.

“The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has had a major impact on both older people and falls prevention services in England”

National Falls Prevention Coordination Group progress report Published 25 March 2021

“Up to one in 20 older people with a history of falling sustains a fracture annually, with some being admitted to hospital or needing to move to a care home. One in three people with a hip fracture dies within one year. Hip fractures alone cost the UK over £2 billion per year. Strategies to prevent fall-related fractures are desperately needed.”
