To support the Reducing Harm from Falls programme’s expanded focus and engagement with primary care, a falls prevention toolkit has been developed by in partnership with bpacnz. The toolkit is adapted from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention resource Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths and Injuries (STEADI).

The toolkit is intended to help primary health care professionals screen, assess and support older patients to prevent falls and maintain their independence.

The stay independent toolkit includes a consumer brochure (patient self-assessment) and will be released in July as part of the 'Stand up to Falls' campaign.
