ProFouND: Prevention of Falls Network for Dissemination

The Prevention of Falls Network for Dissemination (ProFouND) is a thematic network working with the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing to bring about the dissemination and implementation of best practice in falls prevention across Europe.

ProFouND comprises 21 partners from 12 countries, with associate members from 10 countries.
ProFouND aims to influence policy to increase awareness of falls and innovative prevention programmes amongst health and social care authorities, the commercial sector, NGOs and the general public in order to disseminate the work of the network to target groups across EU.
Specifically ProFouND’s objective is to embed evidence based fall prevention programmes for elderly people at risk of falls by using novel ICT and effective training programmes in at least 10 countries/15 regions by 2015 to facilitate widespread implementation. ProFouND will achieve this in three main ways.
