2 Mar 2017 | Reducing Harm from Falls

As part of the Commission's month-long falls prevention promotion, we are once again running the April Falls display competition. Health care providers taking part in April Falls 2017 are again encouraged to send us photos of their local displays and activities, with all entries going in the draw to win a morning tea to the value of $100.

Suitable entries will showcase local themes, displays and activities that:

  • reflect the national theme of Stand Up To Falls (along with your chosen local theme)
  • are aimed at reducing the number of fracture hips, occurring in the hospital setting as we care for some of our most vulnerable patients
  • fits in with the 'whole of system' view for falls and fracture prevention as promoted with ACC and the Ministry of Health.

Entries open 1 April 2017 and close 30 April 2017.

Entries can be sent to gabrielle.nicholson@hqsc.govt.nz. Please be aware that the Commission will publish suitable entries on our website and via our social media channels.
