Injury prevention through reduction in falls is a high priority in healthcare today. Those working with older adults in long-term, acute and home care will acquire the knowledge and skills to apply an evidence-based approach to the prevention of falls and fall-related injuries. Learn how to design, implement and evaluate a fall prevention program. This revised version of the Canadian Fall Prevention Curriculum micro-credential program reflects current evidence on fall risk assessment and prevention, universal fall precautions, as well as fresh approaches to successful and sustainable interventions based on proven strategies from the field of implementation science.
Through facilitated instruction in the program modules, you'll build your knowledge and skills and create a fall prevention implementation project applied to a population of interest. You'll interact with your instructor and your peers to discuss the principles you're learning and compare how the concepts apply in your own work setting. Upon successful completion participants earn a professional development certificate.
Through the StrongerBC future skills grant, students may be eligible to receive funding for this program from Sept. 1 - Dec. 31, 2023.
