The Canadian Injury Prevention Curriculum (CIPC) is a unique curriculum that focuses on injury prevention theory and practice. It is the first curriculum of its kind, targeted to health professionals and other key stakeholders whose work includes injury prevention. The focus of the curriculum is on the epidemiology of injury, the principles of injury prevention, injury data systems, applied research and planning methodologies, and program development and evaluation.

The curriculum is meant for adult learners who, because of their functions or responsibilities, are likely to conduct research activities or develop, implement or evaluate programs aimed at improving safety and reducing the frequency and severity of both intentional and unintentional injury. In addition to increasing the number of individuals prepared with the same basic understanding, we are hoping that the common preparation this initiative will provide will enhance inter-sectoral collaboration. The curriculum is built on Canadian content and uses Canadian examples to illustrate concepts. For more information visit:
