  • Raise awareness of the burden of falls and of the strategies to reduce falls, such as routine screening for falls.
  • Cultivate relationships with new partners and promote falls prevention education and training to all partners in NC.
  • Advocate for policy changes and resources to reduce falls as a prevention tool.
  • Increase visibility and understanding of falls prevention data through strategies to improve data collection and analysis.
