Falls Awareness Week

21st - 25th June, 2010
  • Falls among elderly people cost the NHS more than £4.6 million a day, new analysis found.
  • Up to one in three (3.4 million) people over 65 fall each year in the UK, existing figures show.
  • Almost half of all falls are among the over-80s, half of whom fall again in the following year.
from BBC News Falls amongst the elderly cost the NHS millions daily

Perhaps this Map of Medicine Falls Pathway can help?
Or an overview of the best quality evidence from NHS Evidence , or this more focused perspective from the NHS Evidence Specialist Collection: Later Life
 Contact Isla at the Medical Library if you'd like support in getting the best from these and other information resources.
