Fall-related hospitalisations among older people: sociocultural and regional aspects

Clare Bradley, James Harrison

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

    Abstract

    The ageing of the Australian population has enlarged the population at high risk of fall-related injury and population projections imply substantial increase in years to come. A large proportion of Australia's older population were born overseas and changing migration patterns following the Second World War have resulted in an older population which is becoming highly culturally and linguistically diverse. This report examines fall-related hospitalisations for people aged 65 and older for the years 2000-03 according to country of birth and place of usual residence.
