EXPRESSION OF INTEREST – Advisory Committee & Supporters
The Australian and New Zealand Falls Prevention Society is looking for some help to produce the best possible implementation plan for our falls prevention strategy and to support us in our advocacy.
- attend a round table event to finalise the implementation plan
- share our materials with your networks (via e.g., social media, newsletters)
- advocate alongside us in support of the strategy
- stay informed of the next steps of the strategy
If you’d like to show your support for our call for urgent and coordinated action on falls prevention, we invite you to nominate how you’d like to help.
For those who would like to contribute their thoughts already, we are looking at the influences on falls among adults as a dynamic system. We have drafted a systems map to understand the complexity of factors influencing falls, find potential gaps in coverage or duplication of efforts to prevent falls, and identify priorities for intervention and for evaluation. Our wonderful colleague Professor Bill Bellew has created a brief video and survey. If you have 5 to 10 minutes, we would very much appreciate your thoughts.

Australia & New-Zealand Falls Prevention Society: Who are we?
Welcome to the website of the Australian and New Zealand Falls Prevention Society (ANZFPS). The ANZFPS was formed in 2006 to promote the multidisciplinary study and implementation of falls prevention in older people. The society achieves this purpose by:
- holding regular meetings to present and discuss the latest research and clinical findings relating to the falls risk factors and falls prevention strategies;
- facilitating student participation at ANZFPS meetings through travel grants, low registration fees and presentation awards, and;
- providing members with email notifications about upcoming ANZFPS meetings and other occasional email updates. You can read our newsletters here.
The ANZFPS acknowledges the traditional owners of the unceded lands of Australia upon which we live and work and pays respect to Elders past, present and future.
The ANZFPS acknowledges tangata and mana whenua across Aotearoa New Zealand, tēnā koutou katoa.
