Abstract

This report focuses on trends in fall-related hospital care for people aged 65 and older that occurred over the period 1999-00 to 2010-11. Information is also presented on the incidence and burden of hospitalised fall injury in the financial year 2010-11. Indigenous information is included in the sections covering incidence and trends.

The report provides information on:

  • the profile of hospitalised fall injuries - an overview of fall injury cases by people aged 65 and older in Australia in 2010-11, including the circumstances of the fall
  • the burden of hospitalised fall injury - a summary of fall-related hospitalisations additional to those representing falls cases for the older population in 2010-11, including hospital care following transfers after initial fall injury episodes, fall-related follow-up care separations and episodes of care attributed to a 'tendency to fall'
  • a time series analysis of fall injury cases and other fall-related episodes of hospital care from 1 July 1999. It includes data for 1999-00 to 2010-11.
