Geriatric Research News ‘special edition’ dedicated to falls and falls prevention research

The latest edition of the Simon Fraser Geriatric Research Centre News is devoted to falls and falls prevention research.

Falls are a major cause of injury amongst seniors, often having a devastating effect on their mobility and independence.

To address this, the CIHR-funded (Technology for Injury Prevention) TIPS program comprises an interdisciplinary group of researchers based at SFU and UBC to examine the causes of falls in long-term care and to develop innovative interventions to reduce the incidence and negative effects.
