In a nutshell: About a third of people aged 65 and over falls every year, and 20-30% of these suffer injury as a result. This cost-benefit analysis aimed to identify community-based falls interventions that were feasible, effective and provided a positive return on investment. All three interventions investigated were found to provide net benefit, not only covering implementation costs but also exceeding the expected direct program delivery costs.
