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:
- Visit https://extranet.nwhu.on.ca/sites/falls-prevention/. Click on Register here. Fill in the top portion of information (name/address/email).
- You will get an email back that confirms that you have requested an account, called: Account request for NWHU Extranet.
- 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.
- Once you re-set your password, you can immediately get started in using the site!
If you have any problems accessing/using the site or if you have suggestions for content please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and use the email subject ‘Falls Prevention Community of Practice’.
