Resources revised in 2020

The 10 Topics resources below were updated in 2020 (peer-reviewed by a panel of experts). They will not be updated further, as the falls programme is now complete and they reflected the evidence at the time of publication and review in 2020. 

10 Topics in reducing harm from falls

 The 10 Topics in reducing harm from falls are learning activities for people who want to know more about how to prevent falls and reduce harm from falls in older people. 

The 10 Topics:

  • raise awareness about the impact of falls on older people
  • provide learning activities to support independence for older people, and improve their care 
  • support the Commission’s national Reducing Harm from Falls programme.

The 10 Topics cover core issues in falls prevention, feature interesting articles that can count as learning activities for professional development hours, and introduce resources, videos and patient stories.

A brief description of what each topic covers is below. See also our recommended evidence-based resources (which include systematic reviews, clinical guidelines and toolkits).
