Senior Injury Prevention Program – Educational Forum 2016

MAY 25, 2016 – Save the date!

Welcome to the 16th Annual California Senior Injury Prevention Educational Forum/This past year has been an exciting one for our SIPP Coalition. In addi­tion to receiving a second year of funding from the California Department of Public Health to support this Educational Forum; once again we were provided with funding for another year of two evidence based fall prevention programs – Stepping On and Tai Chi Movement for Better Balance. In addition, this year, we received funding from the Partners in Care Foundation to offer the evidence based fall prevention program Matter of Balance and to implement a modified STEADI (Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths & Injuries) as a fall risk assess­ ment tool utilizing first responders.

This year’s SIPP Forum theme is Growing BOLDER: Bringing Strength & Bal­ance to our Lives! Our Areas of Focus Include:

  1. Safe Practices for Managing Medications
  2. Senior Injury Coalition Building
  3. Exploration of Evidence Based Fall Prevention Programs
  4. Health Complications and Falls.

Once again, our favorite Moderator, Barb Alberson, will welcome us. Our “Mover and Shaker” and passionate senior advocate, Supervisor Nate Miley will be sharing information with Forum participants about Alameda County’s first in the nation Safe Drug Disposal Ordinance that was challenged and validated all the way to the US Supreme Court. This Ordinance goes beyond protecting its own residents’ health and well being, it has paved the way for other counties in California and the country to do the same.
