Public Health England publishes resource pack for falls and fracture prevention

4 September 2017 - 3:48pm

Public Health England has published a resource pack to accompany its Falls and fracture consensus statement: supporting commissioning through prevention, published in January. 

Falls assessments are a ‘must’ for care home residents, says Royal Pharmaceutical Society

The resource pack outlines interventions and recommended approaches for preventing falls and fracture 

The consensus statement was developed by member organisations of the National Falls Prevention Coordination Group (NFPCG), with Agile, the older people’s physiotherapy network, representing the CSP.

It aimed to address the need for a unified approach among the different professions and providers carrying out falls and fracture prevention activities.

CSP professional adviser Priya Dasoju told Frontline that the resource pack outlines interventions and approaches that it recommends commissioners and strategic leads in local areas consider.

‘The consensus statement and the resource pack are essential for professionals who are involved in the prevention of falls and fractures as these tools aim to develop skills and knowledge and support professional practice,’ she said.

‘It is also important for physiotherapists who are looking for effective commissioning support and provision in this area.’
