In a nutshell: Despite a focus on interprofessional (IP) approaches to healthcare, many providers, researchers and community programs continue to operate in silos. This is not only inefficient and costly, but also inconducive to knowledge translation. This study aimed to describe how fall prevention was the vehicle for developing a focused community-wide interprofessional partnership. The framework presented may be helpful to other communities/programs focused on developing interprofessional approaches to evidence-based chronic condition management.
