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.
