We hope you can join to openly support this call for the development and funding of a national strategic plan to reduce the burden on older people, their families and the health system, of the growing problem of falls and fall injuries to people over 65.

ANZFPSOn Friday 29th April 2022, a brainstorming session led by CRE-Prevention of Falls Injuries – Prof Cathie Sherrington, ANZ Fall Prevention Society – Prof Kim Delbaere and NSW Falls Prevention and Healthy Ageing Network – Prof Stephen Lord was held on what we can do differently to increase focus on fall prevention in community dwellers in policy and program funding in NSW and nationally. As a result, a Falls action plan was devised, and a page focused on action is now available on the ANZ Fall prevention Society page: https://www.anzfallsprevention.org/action-on-falls-prevention/.
