Fall Prevention Month

Published in News

Join the fall prevention month movement!

The Partners for Fall Prevention Month have created a toolkit to help other organizations promote November as Fall Prevention Month. Any organization can download and use this toolkit free of charge. You have permission to reproduce and distribute all the resources and to borrow our ideas for events and programming.

The toolkit contains:

  • Suggestions for impactful, one-time fall prevention activities and events to hold during November
  • Information on evidence-informed and evaluated fall prevention programs you can implement for long term results
  • Provincial (Ontario) and national falls statistics
  • Fall prevention resources you can print and distribute to clients
  • Tools and resources about fall prevention for practitioners
  • Promotional materials including the high resolution Fall Prevention Month logo, Facebook banner, media release and sample social media posts.

We would like to thank the Ontario Injury Prevention Resource Centre for hosting the toolkit on their website.
