RoSPA welcomes new falls prevention resource pack

RoSPA is supporting a new resource pack aimed at helping local health commissioners and practitioners develop strategies for falls prevention.

The Falls and fracture consensus statement: resource pack was published by Public Health England (PHE) last week.

It complements the previously published Falls and fracture consensus statement: supporting commissioning for prevention document, produced by member organisations of the National Falls Prevention Coordination Group (NFPCG), which includes RoSPA and is hosted by PHE.

Aimed at local commissioners and strategic leads with a remit for falls and bone health, the resource pack builds on the original statement, including by providing extra information on costs and clinical effectiveness and links to commissioning support resources.

Ashley Martin, RoSPA’s public health project manager, said: “We are delighted to see the launch of this national resource. The timing of this publication is very significant for RoSPA and will support the delivery of our Stand Up, Stay Up falls prevention programme, which works with a network of local partners to raise awareness of how to prevent falls and develop innovative approaches to early intervention across the country.”
