ONF funds research in adult falls prevention

Falls are one of the most serious health problems across the lifespan but very little research currently exists on falls-related injuries in young, middle-aged and older adults while doing everyday activities. ONF has recently funded a research grant to identify best practices in this area. For more information, click on Falls Prevention Funding Announcement.


ONF is funded by the Government of Ontario through an agreement with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.
