Staying Steady - Preventing Falls in West Sussex: Post Event Evaluation

Closed 23 Oct 2017

Opened 6 Oct 2017

Overview

Falls are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality both nationally and in West Sussex. In 2015/16, there were 1370 falls in people over the age of 65 in West Sussex, resulting in 1,195 broken hips and 62 deaths. Falls have been identified as an area of priority by Public Health England (PHE), who recently produced recommendations for local councils on how to help prevent people falling.

In response to this, West Success County Council organised the event “Staying Steady – Preventing Falls in West Sussex” which took place on two separate occasions over September and October. The aim of the event was to bring professionals across public, private and the voluntary sector together to discuss the wider impact of falling in West Sussex and to learn how to further support individuals who require intervention.
