Providence Health partnered with ECU's Health Design Lab to develop a lighting system prototype designed to reduce falls in long-term care settings.

The Canadian Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation (CC-ABHI), in collaboration with Baycrest Health Sciences, has announced thirty-one grant recipients of a total of $1.4 million in funding through its Spark Program. This funding will support the development of early-stage innovations in the field of aging and brain health through ideas generated from point-of-care workers.

Providence Health is one of the recipients of funding for a collaborative project with Emily Carr's Health Design Lab for the development and testing of a lighting system prototype designed to reduce falls in long-term care settings.  This is a continuation of an idea that was initiated as part of our collaboration during the 2015/16 school year.
