Services and Speaking Engagements

Speaking Engagements

BCIRPU subject-matter experts are available to deliver engaging and informative presentations for seminars, conferences, and events on topics related to injury prevention. Presentations represent current evidence and best practices. We do not charge a fee for service; however, an honorarium is often provided and much appreciated. These funds go to support summer studentships and student research mentorships.

Canadian Injury Prevention Curriculum (CIPC)

CIPC focuses on injury prevention, control theory, and practice. It is the first curriculum of its kind that is targeted to community-based public health and injury prevention practitioners, is built on Canadian content and uses Canadian examples to illustrate injury prevention concepts. The CIPC is supported by the Canadian Injury Prevention resource.

Delivered as a two-day workshop on demand, this curriculum is geared towards researchers and injury prevention professionals who practice injury prevention in the community. BCIRPU also delivers a CIPC facilitator workshop for those who would like to lead their own CIPC workshop.

Please email us for workshop details.
