Queensland Stay On Your Feet® Toolkit - Falls prevention in action
Stay on Your Feet Wide Bay/Burnett trial project
The Queensland Stay on Your Feet Wide Bay/Burnett trial project held nine local community planning meetings, with the aim of developing community action plans. At these meetings, priorities for each area and relevant strategies to address falls and healthy active ageing were identified and written into a plan. All plans focused on a range of awareness and information activities and resources, and encouraging and promoting opportunities for increased physical activity . The plans were distributed to each organisation on the mailing list (1,300 contacts). The plans became the central focus for the project and were taken to all training sessions, displays, expos and events. This allowed the community to focus on implementing the plans.
Community action plans were produced for the following four areas:
