Fall prevention in older Aboriginal people in New South Wales

 

Overview

This Healthy Ageing project intends to examine the effectiveness of existing mainstream falls prevention interventions and their acceptability, when used with Aboriginal populations. The project, in partnership with local Aboriginal communities in New South Wales (NSW) will identify appropriate programs and test them in Aboriginal health services and among older Aboriginal people in other community settings. 

This project was established because falls are the leading cause of injury related to hospitalisation in older Aboriginal people in NSW.

The project will be led by the George Institute for Global Health with funding from the NSW Ministry of Health.
