Upcoming Canadian Fall Prevention Curriculum (CFPC) courses start September 20, 2019. Courses run in an online format for 25 instructional hours. Visit the University of Victoria website for more information and to register.
Injury prevention through reduction in patient falls is a high priority in health care today. Those working with older adults in long-term, acute and home care will acquire the knowledge and skills needed 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. The revised 2017 version of the CFPC 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.
Facilitated instruction leads you through a process to:
- develop strategies and interventions
- apply current programs
- understand the reliability and validity of existing resources and tools for screening and assessing fall risk
A project will be created throughout the course as you work through modules specific to a population of most interest.
If you work with older adults in long term care, acute care, home care or in the community, this updated five-week, self-directed, e-learning course will help you acquire the knowledge and skills needed to apply an evidence-based approach to the prevention of falls and fall-related injuries.
