ProFouND is an EC: CIP funded Thematic Network. We work closely with the EIP-AHA to bring about the dissemination and implementation of best practice in falls prevention across Europe, using novel ICT solutions. ProFouND comprises 21 partners from 12 countries, with associate members from 10 countries. ProFouND intends to bring together relevant stakeholders to consolidate roadmaps and guidelines regarding fall prevention and facilitate the communication between solution/service providers and the key stakeholders (private actors, public authorities (at national, regional or local level) and others) to ensure effective implementation and reach.
ProFouND aims to influence policy and to increase awareness of falls and innovative prevention programmes amongst all sectors and organisations that work with older people.
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.
