In brief: Avoid twisting
Unless there are some predispositions to dislocation (malalignment), typically patellar dislocations are associated with twisting and axial loads of the knee.
So, to avoid, future dislocations, avoid these trauma. Most importantly, it is imperative to strengthen the quadriceps to help improve patellar tracking with knee range of motion.
