Dear colleague,


Thank you for considering participation in this online survey.


Falls and related injuries form a growing healthcare problem in our aging societies. To tackle this healthcare issue, many countries have developed healthcare services for falls prevention. However, they meet several challenges in the implementation of falls prevention. 


The EuGMS SIG on Falls & Fractures developed this online questionnaire in an effort to capture the challenges and opportunities across Europe and identify key areas for improvement in the future. It includes questions on your current falls prevention practices, approaches, knowledge, and needs/wishes for future interventions. 


This survey will take approximately 15 minutes of your time and was approved by the Medical Ethical committee of the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam. Your personal information and data will be processed anonymously and will not be distributed to third parties. Participation is voluntary.


Yours sincerely,

On behalf of the EuGMS SIG Falls and Fractures,

Dr. Lotta Seppala and Prof. Nathalie van der Velde
