November is Fall Prevention Month. Thank you to our colleagues across UHN who are supporting the safe mobility of patients and the community. Falls are a leading cause of injury and hospitalization for seniors. Recognizing this,
Toronto Rehab offers an outpatient Falls Prevention Program that focuses on education and exercise. Since 2013, over 700 seniors have joined the 10-week program, which explores risks, safe footwear, fear of falling, stair safety, community resources, and more. At
The KITE Research Institute, UHN scientists are engaged in research projects to understand why people fall and what tools, devices and design innovations can help prevent future injuries. At
Altum Health, innovative programs and services such as the Hip & Knee Bundled Care and Workplace Safety Insurance Board treatment programs help clients reach their maximum potential for returning to work and life after a fall-related injury. Altum consistently achieves strong clinical and vocational outcomes, such as 90% client treatment satisfaction with 11,000 clients seen annually.
November is Osteoporosis Month. Thank you to our colleagues at
UHN's Osteoporosis Program and Centre of Excellence in Skeletal Health Assessment (CESHA) at TG, TW, PM and TR-LC for their remarkable work across care, research and education. The program led by Angela Cheung, and multidisciplinary clinic led by Lianne Tile, is home to the first and largest longitudinal cohort of patients with atypical femur fractures worldwide. As part of the Schroeder Arthritis Institute, it has expanded to become one of the world's largest centres for specialized osteoporosis, metabolic and rare bone disease care, and research. With more than 5,900 patients, it has also become a leader in musculoskeletal medical education, training more than 300 fellows from Canada and around the world. At least 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men will break a bone due to osteoporosis in their lifetime. At UHN, a quality improvement project in the Fracture Clinic at TW has bridged the gap between osteoporosis and fractures, making sure patients with fractures are looked after and their recent fracture is their last.
