Prof Dawn Skelton gave a keynote at a conference in Kent this week. The presentation covered a recent review of the evidence behind falls prevention interventions (Cochrane Reviews and Exercise Reviews), links with Physical Activity Guidelines for Older People and some thoughts on implementation of assessment and intervention on lesser considered risk factors such as feet, eyes and continence. The day also included a very successful #fallschat on Twitter, an exercise class and more. Contact @uk_james for further information.
