Centre for Hip Health and Mobility YouTube Channel

The Centre for Hip Health and Mobility (CHHM) has recently launched a YouTube channel featuring three videos on preventing falls in long-term care.  CHHM, part of UBC and affiliated with the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, aims to improve hip health and mobility through research and translating research into practice.  Over a five year period, CHHM placed video cameras in two long-term care facilities to capture the falls of residents.  By doing so, researchers were better able to understand how falls occur and designed strategies on how to prevent falls or reduce the risk of falls. 
These videos showcase the results of this study and how the evidence can be translated into practical application within long-term care facilities.
