IPC Lecture Series
The IPC Lecture Series aims to provide physicians with information about injury prevention. It will introduce Emergency Medicine faculty, residents, and the community of interest to injury surveillance data, intervention strategies (particularly those based in clinical settings), risk assessments, and policy changes in areas including opioid overdose, older adult falls, motor vehicle trauma, and concussion, among others. Lectures will be provided by clinicians, researchers, epidemiologists, and public health program directors. Though embedded in the Emergency Medicine Department’s resident training program, the series is open to the BMC campus and public health practitioners throughout the greater Boston area.
Please join us for an upcoming presentation titled "Clinical & Community-based Programs Designed to Reduce Fall Risk: A Review of High-profile, Evidence-based Options" given by Elizabeth W. Peterson, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA.
