Abstract BackgroundFalls in older people are a leading causes of unintentional injury. Due to an ageing population, injuries are likely to increase unless more is done to reduce older people’s falls risk. Strength and balance exercise programmes are recommended by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence and Public Health England’s Falls and Fragility Fractures consensus statement to prevent falls in older people. However, the commissioning of such programmes is inconsistent across England. Implementation toolkitThe PHISICAL study was designed to study the implementation of FaME in a range of different settings in England and an output of this study is an implementation toolkit for commissioners and providers. The toolkit gives evidence-based and practical advice for local areas to put in place strength and balance programmes. It includes sections on topics such as developing a business case, service specification and cost calculator, workforce considerations, publicity materials such as posters, elected member briefing and case studies and also results from the PHISICAL implementation study on the factors that improve fidelity and uptake of programmes. ConclusionsThe implementation toolkit provides evidence-based information on how to commission and provide a group-based strength and balance training programme in the community. External funding details The research was funded by the NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care East Midlands (CLAHRC EM).
