Fall Prevention Community of Practice
Our Community of Practice (CoP) strives to create supportive communities in Ontario where adults enjoy quality of life and maintain their independence through the prevention of falls. We support our members to build capacity in the prevention of falls and fall-related injuries.
A CoP is a group of people who come together to exchange information on a topic.
