We regret to inform you that 5th Canadian Falls Prevention Conference 2020, scheduled for June 15th & 16th, as well as the Pre-Conference workshop on June 14th, have been cancelled.
The conference planning committee has been closely monitoring the developments related to the novel coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) and we have decided to cancel the event is based on concern for the health of our registrants, speakers, exhibitors and staff. This decision was not made lightly, however, given the rapidly evolving nature of the situation and reports from the World Health Organization (WHO), Health Canada, and The Saskatchewan Health Authority our primary concern at this point is protecting everyone involved with the conference.
CERS recognizes and greatly appreciates the hard work and dedication many of its members put into developing the conference — especially our presenters and speakers who have undoubtedly been preparing for presentations. We also appreciate the support from our sponsors.
We sincerely regret this necessary cancellation and apologize for any inconvenience it may cause you. We have made arrangements for all those registered to be provided with full refunds, including sponsors.
The Fall Prevention Communities of Practice (CoPs), Loop (www.fallsloop.com) and Loop Junior (www.jr.fallsloop.com) are free and bilingual online communication platforms where members across Canada can share information, network, problem-solve together and discuss how to implement evidence-informed and promising fall prevention practices. The primary difference between Loop and Loop Junior is the population of focus and thereby the different stakeholders involved – Loop focuses on fall prevention among adults and older adults while Loop Junior seeks to prevent falls among children. The goal of the two CoPs is to share knowledge with over 3,000 members on fall prevention across the lifespan with intent to inform practice. Loop and Loop Junior are sponsored by the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation – a non-profit government organization that works to prevent neurotrauma injuries and ensure people with spinal cord and brain injuries lead full, productive lives.
