The Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation in collaboration with the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) would like to invite you to join us for an insightful webinar on traumatic brain injuries and falls among seniors. Traumatic brain injury resulting from a fall is a significant issue for adults over the age of 60 in Canada. The increased hospitalization rate related to falls among older adults, in addition to the increased number in the Canadian population will only escalate this issue. Presentations will provide information on the rates and trends of traumatic brain injury, as well as their impact on an older population.

Who should attend:
– Policy makers, program designers and social service providers who work with older adults
– Anyone interested in learning more about traumatic brain injuries and falls among seniors
