Falls and fragility fractures - so much more than a lying and standing blood pressure....

14 Nov 2023
Theatre C: AGM Clinical
Falls and related injuries are increasingly common, making their prevention and management a critical challenge. Opportunistic case-finding is necessary as older adults may not present following a fall and may be reluctant to report falls. Multidomain interventions tailored to individual’s risks factors, when delivered, are effective. Engaging older individual’s beliefs, attitudes and priorities about falls and their management is essential.
