  • This qualitative case study will examine how Public Health professionals have helped groups of service providers from diverse organizations and/or older adult stakeholders to work together and move knowledge into action in the development of fall prevention and related projects for community-dwelling older adults.  Four groups in different communities across Ontario will be studied.  The objectives are to:  (1) describe the processes the groups used to plan and implement their fall prevention projects; (2) describe lessons learned and key success factors and barriers encountered; (3) describe how Public Health professionals helped the groups to work together and move knowledge into action; and (4) describe the perceived impact of the strategies used to promote collaboration and knowledge use.
