Clinician with a female patient in a hospitalOlder people who present to hospital with a fall, a history of falls or mobility problems are at risk of functional decline.

Identifying, investigating and responding to their needs is an important part of minimising this risk.

These topics provide information and recommend actions that we and our organisations can take to improve care for older patients.
