The Canadian Injury Prevention Curriculum (CIPC) is the only curriculum designed to provide practitioners with an understanding of the theory and practice of injury prevention, including the tools needed to develop and implement effective programs. This unique resource is based on Canadian content and features an interactive curriculum.

The CIPC is meant for adult learners who develop, implement or evaluate programs aimed at reducing the frequency and severity of both intentional and unintentional injury.

There are two levels of learning for the CIPC:

Level 1: Skills-Based Learning is a two-day, workshop to build a foundational knowledge base and covers:

  • Introduction to Injury Prevention & Classifying Injuries

  • Risk and Protective Factors (understanding Key Determinants for Injury)

  • Selecting an Intervention

  • Implementation and Evaluation

It is strongly recommended that Level 1 is completed prior to taking any of the Modules in Level 2. To find out about how to register for a CIPC workshop near you, go to How To Take The Course.

The Canadian Injury Prevention Resource is the textbook that compliments the CIPC - read or download it for free.

Level 2: Knowledge-Based Learning is comprised of modules that provide more in depth detail. Modules are online, self-learning, video-based tools and learners can select Modules that are of most interest to them. Upon completion of each Module, the learner will received a certificate (generated electronically).
