React To Falls

Reducing the risk of falls in your care home.

React To Falls

React To Falls resources have been developed by Professor Pip Logan, Dr Katie Robinson, Katherine Jones, Jane Balmbra and Kate Robertson in collaboration with clinical colleagues at
Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Crocodile House Ltd. The work has been supported by the University of Nottingham Division of Rehabilitation, Ageing and Wellbeing, the
Academic Health Science Network East Midlands and funded by NHS Improvement. Previous research conducted by Professor Pip Logan at the University of Nottingham was used to provide
the basis for the development of these resources.
