This new document from Age UK explains the research base for falls prevention exercise to give a better understanding of the programmes that have been shown to be effective in preventing falls.
The guide also provides examples of evidence-based programmes that are currently in practice and demonstrates how they contribute to an integrated falls care pathway.
This document aims to reduce the incidence of falls by:
- describing the evidence base for falls prevention exercise
- outlining the benefits of evidence-based falls prevention exercise for older people and health and care services
- presenting a range of services delivering to the evidence.
The guide also sets out the evidence base for what works in strength and balance training, and to highlight some of the programmes around the country which have incorporated this evidence into their falls prevention services.
