The Cost of Falls Prevention in Torbay

Exploring the system-wide costs of falls in older people in TorbayThis excellent and unprecedented publication details the numbers of incidents and their associated costs in the area of Torbay in the UK. Utilising a system where patient data is directly associated with the costs of their treatment and provides a helpful insight into not just the costs associated with the incident but also the ongoing care costs after a fall and furthermore how these costs are distributed across hospital, community and social care system for falls patients. In addition co-morbitities were recorded that revealed that these were previously under-coded.

Here at profane.co we don't often make recommendations, but this is highly recommended reading, I think we would even go as far to say this is essential for anyone working in falls prevention.

You can read the introduction and summary or download the .pdf directly.
