Local Falls Working Group
This DHB-based group was established in 2016 and is working with ACC to establish free access to strength and balance classes, both in the community as well as in-home. These classes will be available to anyone at risk of falls, regardless of whether they have had a fall or not.

Reducing Harm from Falls
In 2015 BOPDHB has actively involved in the HQSC Stand up to Falls campaign. The 10 priorities Organisation Self-assessment, and the Safe environment assessment have been completed resulting in modifying the environment with sensor mats, lighting and call bell changes, improving teaching of safe moving and implementing safe signalling resources.
