SHKN Communities of Practice

Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of practitioners, caregivers, policymakers, researchers, healthcare administrators, educators and leaders who come together to exchange information on a topic related to seniors health. Community groups are committed to supporting and learn from one another to develop new knowledge and applied practice.

Active CoPs include:

  • Fall Prevention Community of Practice: This Community of Practice (CoP) strives to create supportive communities where adults enjoy quality of life and maintain their independence through the prevention of falls. We support our members to build capacity in the prevention of falls and fall-related injuries.
  • Social Isolation Community of Practice: Through this Community of Interest, the Ontario Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program and community partners seek to explore the best practices used to mitigate negative effects of social isolation among community-dwelling older adults during and post COVID-19.
