Finding Balance Campaign
Finding Balance is a public awareness campaign designed to increase awareness of slips, trips, and falls among older adults. The campaign provides information for practitioners as well as resources they can use for older adults. Finding Balance was developed by the Injury Prevention Centre at the University of Alberta.
Unique resources have been developed by many provinces specific to their population.
