Falls represent 15.5 per cent of all incidents reported in Queensland Health hospitals, with inpatient falls estimated to cost Queensland $5.4 million in surgery costs, wound care, and extended length of hospital stay related to the fall. Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) provides more than 22,000 attendances annually to adults over the age of 65 that have fallen.

In an effort to reduce these figures and better prevent falls from occurring, we united falls prevention experts from Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom to share evidence-based knowledge and learnings to help clinicians translate knowledge into practice.
