Spring Notts Falls Prevention and Physical Activity Community of Practice event takes place

On Wednesday the 25th May, over 80 people working in the area of Falls Prevention joined the 'second-ever' Community of Practice event via teams.

The COP is led by members of the Active Notts team and a small group physiotherapists from a community and mental health NHS Trust and Acute trusts. Together, with no additional funding, they have created 'noise in the system' about falls prevention and physical activity.

The Community of Practice aims to create the infrastructure which will ultimately lead to people living stronger, happier and healthier lives across Notts.

The COP Shared Aims

• Workforce development: support people across community, clinical and care settings

• Evidence-based activity: developing and embedding a coordinated offer in all settings (community, clinical and care)

• Positioning of physical activity & movement: to enable cultural change shifting towards prevention
