Canadian Fall Prevention Curriculum

cfpcThe Canadian Fall Prevention Curriculum (CFPC) basic and facilitator courses are available as a five-week e-learning basic course online.

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. 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

Upon course completion participants should be able to:

  • Define the scope and nature of the problem of falls
  • Provide falls risk identification and assessment
  • Provide a selection of prevention interventions reflecting evidence-based strategies
  • Understand social and policy context
  • Provide application of a program planning model
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of a falls prevention program

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.
