Falls Prevention Community of Practice


If you work in falls prevention or healthy aging, we encourage you to become a part of the Fall Prevention Community of Practice. This online network connects individuals, organizations and agencies from across the region working in falls prevention and healthy aging. It provides a place to share tools, exchange ideas and collaborate with others.


To participate in the falls prevention extranet site, here are the steps to set up your account:

  1. Visit https://extranet.nwhu.on.ca/sites/falls-prevention/. Click on Register here. Fill in the top portion of information (name/address/email).
  2. You will get an email back that confirms that you have requested an account, called: Account request for NWHU Extranet.
  3. Once we approve your account you will receive a second email notification to set a password (this may take up to 48 hours since approvals are done during health unit office hours). Your username will be the email address you provided during registration.
  4. Once you re-set your password, you can immediately get started in using the site!
  5. When you log in for the first time, you will be asked to agree to our Terms of Use.

If you have any problems accessing/using the site or if you have suggestions for content please contact talkpublichealth@nwhu.on.ca and use the email subject ‘Falls Prevention Community of Practice’.
