Falls Prevention Webinar Recording

Unintentional injury is the biggest issue in community safety and when it comes to unintentional injury the most common injury will result from falling. Falls are the cause of more hospital admissions and injury statistics than any other safety issue. But, falls draw less media attention than most other safety issues. Public awareness about the risk and frequency of falls, and the extent of injury and impairment that can result is alarmingly low.
