FALLS PREVENTION CLINIC
The Falls Prevention Clinic is a referral-based and research-driven clinic that specializes in preventing falls and fractures among adults aged 65 years and older. By integrating research with clinical care, our mission is to reduce the burden of falls by identifying the reasons why older adults fall, what are effective interventions to prevent falls, and to deliver evidence-informed best-practice medicine.
The Falls Prevention Clinic includes a dedicated team of geriatricians, research staff, and researchers that are dedicated to improving mobility, functional independence, and quality of life. We are currently running the Falls Prevention Clinic at Vancouver General Hospital.
