The Centre for Health Services Research and the Queensland Dementia, Ageing, and Frailty Clinical Network present a Geriatric Medicine Seminar Series titled: 'Falls and injury prevention: Outcomes from two large studies in the UK' presented by Professor Pip Logan. Professor Logan presented the results from two large programs of work. FinCH, £2.5m, has led to an intervention that has reduced falls in care homes by 43%, and PRAISED (£3.5m), which is aiming to increase activity in people with early-stage dementia to prevent injury and deterioration later.
