Care Forum Wales expert joins falls task force

Our health and safety expert Anthony Acari, pictured, has joined the National Task Force for Falls Prevention in Older People.

The task force – which brings together health, housing, social care and third sector professionals with expertise in falls prevention – works in conjunction with the Steady On Stay Safe campaign in order to raise public awareness to reduce the risk of falls in older people, develop interventions and to develop a data-sharing pathway between the NHS and non-NHS organisations.

As part of the programme, a group of healthcare, public sector and third sector professionals met in Llandudno on January 12mto continue the ongoing national conversation around the future of falls prevention in older people in Wales.

The workshop – Prudent Healthcare: Falls Prevention For Older People – was hosted by 1000 Lives Improvement as part of its falls prevention programme for older people. The event was attended by more than 70 delegates and included a citizens’ panel to enable dialogue between older service users and professionals.

The event included the second meeting of the National Task Force for Falls Prevention in Older People.
