Older adults present to Emergency Departments (EDs) for treatment after a fall. The aim of this thesis was to establish the evidence base for how allied health Care Coordination Teams (CCT) in EDs could best support these patients. Limited evidence was identified for the provision of services in the ED on reducing the number of older adults who have future falls. However, intervention may impact the rate of falls, extent of fall related injuries and costs to health service providers. A CCT should focus resources on secondary falls prevention.
