Ironbark falls prevention program

Injury Matters is pleased to have been supporting the Ironbark Research Project in Mirrabooka and Bunbury for the past two years.

The Ironbark falls prevention program is a group-based yarning and exercise class that aims to improve social and emotional wellbeing, independence, mobility, strength, balance and overall physical activity levels among participants. Every week the class includes 45 minutes of exercise and a 45-minute yarning circle. These classes are facilitated by a trained health professional and by Aboriginal research assistants for 10-20 older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who live independently in the community.

This Aboriginal fall prevention research is led by Professor Marion Kickett and Professor Anne-Marie Hill at Curtin University alongside PHD student Ms Margaret Gidgup. If you are interested to find out more about Ironbark contact Professor Anne-Marie Hill at  Anne-Marie.Hill@Curtin.edu.au
