Falls prevention is a hot topic with individuals, families, communities and professionals.
We have included information on local resources and initiatives to help people in the community and those working with the public. This section of the website contains information about:
- Resources – information sheets, booklets, posters, videos and checklists to help people in the community learn how to prevent falls. Individuals can order or download a single copy of each resource. Health care professionals and community groups within Winnipeg may order quantities of the resources as required.
- Initiatives – local projects and activities aimed at preventing falls. Find out more about what is going on locally and how you can get involved.
- Publications – new information on how to prevent falls comes out almost daily, and it is sometimes conflicting or confusing. We have included reports and research articles about large studies or collective research on falls risk and prevention.
