Falls and Bone Health Section

Set up in 2001, this popular section acts as a focus for multidisciplinary interest and expertise on fall prevention and bone health and aims to provide an interface with other relevant organisations.

Our objectives are to:

  • Draw together, identify and coordinate expertise and interest in the field of falls and bone health amongst members of the Society
  • Provide an informal forum to present clinical work and research
  • Promote, by interchange of ideas, research of high quality and so indirectly assist the group to acquire financial support for studies in falls and bone health
  • Improve the quality of care for older people at risk of falls and fractures
  • Act as a focus for multidisciplinary interest and expertise on fall prevention and bone health and to interface with other relevant organisations
  • In certain circumstances, to act through the membership as a coordinating group for larger scale multi-centre studies, either by providing a network for an existing member or department, or less frequently, by mounting a centrally organised exercise.
