If you are planning to deliver a community-based falls prevention strategy, the Stay On Your Feet® website is a great place to find the evidence you need to ensure your program will effectively prevent slips, trips and falls amongst older adults.
Visit the Evidence and Reference Documents page on the Stay On Your Feet® website to discover every document used to inform Western Australia’s leading falls prevention program, Stay On Your Feet®.
The information and documents referenced can guide the planning of your falls prevention program, whether it be tackling a single falls prevention risk factor or taking a multifactorial approach, the Stay On Your Feet® website has a range of databases, reports, journal articles and websites available at your fingertips! This will set you up for the successful implementation and evaluation of an evidence-based falls prevention program.
If you are pitching a falls prevention program to your funding bodies or applying for grants, it is integral that your strategies are informed by good quality evidence. These programs have the highest chance of producing positive outcomes amongst your target group thus increasing your likelihood of receiving funding.
All health professionals are also encouraged to use the Stay On Your Feet® website as a resource to refer to when discussing falls prevention strategies with older adults. There is plenty of information available for community members and health professionals about falls risk factors and ways to reduce these risk factors to prevent slips, trips and falls.
The Stay On Your Feet® eDirectory launched earlier this year, is a fantastic tool to connect older adults with programs, services or events that will move their body, improve their health and remove hazards to reduce their risk of falls.
Health professionals can also access free resources, including Stay On Your Feet® brochures and more that can be provided to older adults, apply for a grant to fund a falls prevention initiative and get involved in the current campaign.
