A Fall Prevention team at Parachute provides leadership, project management and coordination support to the Community of Practice. The team consists of:
Director, Fall Prevention Program
Knowledge Broker, Loop Knowledge Centre
Consultant - Liaison, Fall Prevention Community of Practice
Coordinator, Knowledge Translation & Programs
The Core Team is the engine behind the Fall Prevention Community of Practice. This passionate group advises on the strategic direction of the Community of Practice (CoP). The Core Team members are diverse; coming from different sectors, roles and geographic locations. Their expertise in fall prevention, large professional networks, and their own ongoing knowledge needs help to shape the CoP’s growth and activities. They also commit their time to working groups on webinars, communication and evaluation.
Each year, we review the membership of the Core Team and invite additional organizations to participate, as needed. For more information about joining the Core Team, contact Marguerite Thomas.
