Euro millions to be invested in falls risk assessments? (Eire)

In Ireland, a falls prevention working group is preparing a report which will potentially guide millions of euro in investments toward falls risk assessment. There are statistics in this article but, what is more interesting, is the medical mind-set that assumes that large expenditure is required owing to the need to establish assessment ‘facilities’ when, surely, this is an area where the majority of assessments could be undertaken as self-assessments if the right software and publicity approach were taken.
