Falls and fall-related injuries place a significant burden on the WA health system and can have a profound and long-lasting impact on the individual, their family, the community and the health care system. However, many people don’t realise that falls are preventable.
- Are you a fitness instructor, allied health assistant or peer group exercise coordinator working with older adults in the community?
- Would you like to know more about the link between staying active and reducing the impact and incidence of falls in older Australians?
- Would you like to learn more about the importance of balance and what you can do to prevent falls in older Australians living in the community?
Why not attend the Stay On Your Feet® Active Balance Workshop?
This informative and interactive workshop will provide you with insight into the incidence and impact of falls, how ageing affects balance, as well as explore practical evidence-informed exercise strategies that you can incorporate into your existing programs to support older adults to improve their balance and prevent falls.
