Following the launch of the Provincial Fall Prevention Framework and Toolkit in 2011, each LHIN has been working on developing a Fall Prevention Strategy. Champlain, NE and SE LHINs share common borders and have come together to share common approaches and initiatives, with a view to collaborating to reduce costly duplication. By taking a provincial approach the hope is to improve effectiveness and efficiency across Ontario. Presenters Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Hélène Gagné, Christine Bidmead, Dianne Rossy, Wendy Carew, Megan Jaquith and Rhonda Lovell shared information about their work to date and looking at ways to move forward together.
