The Partners for Fall Prevention Month have created a toolkit to help organizations in Ontario promote November 2015 as Fall Prevention Month. Any organization can download and use this toolkit free of charge. Toolkit contents include promotional materials, client resources, fall statistics and infographics, and suggestions for activities, events and programming.

Thousands of fall-related head injuries are seen in Ontario hospitals each year. Using Ontario emergency department (ED) visit and hospital discharge data, this issue of the Ontario Injury Compass discusses risk factors for fall-related head injuries in older adults, as well as evidence-based fall prevention practices.
