West Kent Health & Wellbeing Board Meeting 18 April 2017

Workshop: Towards a Whole Systems Approach to Falls Prevention

From Current State to Ideal Status

 

Hip Fractures in people aged 65 and over are higher than national rates in districts in West Kent. Injuries due to falls in people aged 65 and over in all four districts is higher than the national level.

 

Falls prevention and management services should be seen as an important

component of integrated services with specific outcomes for reducing the falls

related burden of ill health across health and social care sector. Commissioners need to work with stakeholders (providers and the voluntary sector) to identify the Ĺat riskĺ population for timely intervention).

The CCG has a role in managing falls; District and Borough councils áhave a role in managing the environment to reduce falls and home hazards, whilst the Public Health role is to strengthen the system (which includes mobilising the population group and others such as the community and voluntary sector). West Kent Health & Wellbeing Board is seeking to stimulate discussion around developing a Ĺframeworkĺ for falls prevention and management for its population.
