Injury Prevention Centre

The Injury Prevention Centre is part of the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta.

Knowledge. Leadership. Action.

Our Vision: Albertans work and play hard, free from life-limiting injuries.

Our Mission: The Injury Prevention Centre will lead the reduction of catastrophic injuries and deaths in Alberta. We will be a catalyst for action by supporting communities and decision-makers with knowledge and tools. We will raise the profile of preventing injuries as an important component of life-long health and wellness.

Our Priorities:

  • Reduce the incidence and severity of unintentional poisoning among children ages 0-9 years old.
  • Reduce the incidence and severity of falls among older adults (65+ years of age).
  • Promote agricultural safety to reduce the rate of deaths and serious injury in the farming population.
  • Address emerging injury issues with consideration of the unique Alberta context.

Finding Balance
is a seniors' falls prevention initiative developed by the Injury Prevention Centre at the University of Alberta, in partnership with seniors' groups, healthcare organizations, and practitioners across Canada and is administered nationally by provincial stewards.
