An Integrated Approach to Preventing Fall-Related Injuries among Older Adults in Ontario

The Ontario Fall Prevention Collaborative, which is comprised of representatives from the key organizations involved in the planning and implementation of fall prevention interventions in Ontario, including local health integration networks (LHINs), public health units, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and regional geriatric centres and programs, recommends that the Government of Ontario work with key providers of health services to older adults to establish an integrated provincial fall prevention system. Key elements of this approach, are outlined in a detailed Framework developed by the Ontario Fall Prevention Collaborative (see link below).
