Canadian Falls Prevention Curriculum (CFPC)
The Canadian Falls Prevention Curriculum (CFPC) Workshop is a two-day, facilitated course that offers the participants the knowledge and skills needed to apply a public health approach to the prevention of falls and fall-related injuries. The workshop incorporates interactive learning, group discussion, and the completion of a Program Implementation Worksheet to learn more about how to design, implement and evaluate a fall prevention program that is tailored to the workplace or community setting. It is also an opportunity to learn from experienced and engaging facilitators and to share information with other participants.
