This briefing will provide an expert analysis of the impact of injuries sustained by older adults in WA, including health sector costs, long-term care costs, loss of paid productivity and loss of quality of life. Keynote presentations will be delivered from the perspectives of research, policy and practice, with a focus on how the data can be understood and applied to inform policy and program development, and strategies available to work with older adults.
