Falls: Multifactorial Determinants of Injury
Oct 27, 2020
PHI Productions

The World Health Organization defines a fall as “an event which results in a person coming to rest inadvertently on the ground,  floor or other lower level.” Fall-related injuries may be fatal or non-fatal, however, most are non-fatal, but may still result in significant injury or disability. Falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide, second only to road traffic incidents. November is Fall Prevention Month in Canada and the Public Health Insight Podcast seized the opportunity to discuss this historical month-long commitment to raising awareness about the incidence of falls, the underlying causes and associated risk factors, and negative health outcomes that occur as a result of falling.
