In response to the New Zealand government’s recent announcement and to provide certainty for our delegates and presenters, the decision has been made to cancel the dinner and workshops 02. A NATIONAL SYSTEMS APPROACH TO FALLS AND FRACTURE PREVENTION IN NEW ZEALAND and 03. BUILDING BLOCKS FOR DESIGNING EXERCISE PROGRAMMES FOR OLDER PEOPLE LIVING IN AGED RESIDENTIAL CARE THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

All the other workshops will be going virtual.

We will be in contact with registered delegates to communicate this shortly.

Welcome to the 9th biennial Australian and New Zealand Falls Prevention Conference where our mantra is ‘Live Stronger for Longer’ underpinning our desire to promote strength, independence and wellbeing in ageing.

Our conference this year will be fully online, utilising a innovative new virtual conferencing software.

Falls are critical events in the lives of older people and people with specific diseases that threaten independence and diminish quality of life. They are, however, preventable. Bone health is also critical in considering the injury impact of falls. New ideas and the sharing of knowledge will enable better strategies for prevention, greater understanding of the processes leading to falls and injury, and more effective prevention and management in primary, secondary and tertiary care.

This conference will:

  • Present world leading research and new evidence to drive practice;
  • Provide professional upskilling to improve fall prevention;
  • Enable community engagement and networking with colleagues, health providers, stakeholders and funders and planners.
