Interventions can prevent falls: study

An international review involving University of Sydney researchers has shed light on falls in older people, revealing some interventions can effectively prevent falls in people over 65 and living in their own homes.

The review, published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, included 159 trials involving more than 79,000 participants from Australia, the UK and New Zealand and was co-authored by Professor Lindy Clemson (pictured) in the Faculty of Health Sciences and Associate Professor Cathie Sherrington from the George Institute for Global Health.
