Invitation to Attend

The very successful inaugural GrassRoots Falls Festival was held in 2015, followed by Take Two in 2017. This is now a firmly established biennial conference and we invite you to attend the 3rd GrassRoots Falls Festival in 2019.

Falls management is complex and diverse. The festival provides an opportunity for health professionals and other staff across all settings, managers, educators, policy makers, and others with an interest in reducing the risk of falling among older people to enjoy sharing the latest ideas and innovative approaches in practice, research and falls prevention at the GrassRoots level.

The festival focus is to support the broad falls prevention community to access current research, practice innovations, cutting edge work in falls prevention and management and other exciting GrassRoots falls prevention initiatives that are happening in Australia and overseas. The program will feature presentations from across the residential aged care, hospital and community settings.

The conference aims to support making a difference at the GrassRoots level, in a fun and relaxed environment. So come along and share the learnings while having fun!

We look forward to welcoming you to the 3rd GrassRoots Falls Festival in 2019!
