Please join us for the
Older Adult Falls Prevention Journal Club 

Have you ever wondered how they determine if something is evidence-based?
How can I make sense of a journal article?

Well, join your colleagues to discuss pertinent articles in the field of older adult fall prevention. A member of the Club facilitates each session, with the help of a Guest Expert if needed. The purpose is not to do an academic review of the article, but to examine the article to see how the information could be applied to our work in older adult fall prevention and to increase our knowledge of evidence-based fall prevention practices.

The Journal Club is meeting monthly in 2014. Members many attend any or all sessions.  We usually meet the 4th Wed of each month from 11am-Noon. The next two Older Adult Fall Prevention Journal Clubs will be:

April 2, from 1-2 pm (this is a reschedule for the March 26 meeting) Laura Goodwin, from Garfield Co Health Dept will be leading the discussion on a Tai Chi evaluation article. You can access the article, and Laura's review on the Journal Club tab. 

April 23, 2014 from 11 - Noon (our regular schedule) The article is about an evaluation of a Moving for Better Balance program. We are looking for a facilitator for this session.  You can find the article on the Journal Club tab.  

Please call in to 712-432-0220 Pin: 2589.
