How can this program help you improve the way you care for your patients?

The Osteoporosis and Fracture Prevention Workshop is an opportunity for you to enhance your learning in screening, diagnosing, and optimizing care for patients with osteoporosis, including those with moderate risk. Through small-group discussions and case analysis, this workshop addresses key issues including osteoporosis-related fractures, secondary causes, and current care gaps - and examines pharmacological treatment options, opportunities for non-pharmacological treatment, and drug holidays.  This Workshop is currently being certified.

The Osteoporosis and Fracture Prevention in LTC webinar “Clinical Application of the Long-Term Care Fracture Prevention Recommendations for Frail Older Adults” is a 1-hour webinar that will help you to address existing care gaps by illustrating the application of pharmacological and non-pharmacological fracture prevention recommendations with frail older adults in LTC. The webinar will also identify barriers and enablers to implementing and present a comprehensive approach to identify fracture risk and deliver non-pharmacological and pharmacological therapies to reduce immobility, pain and transfers to hospitals while improving the quality of life of residents in LTC.

 

This program has received funding from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care as part of the Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy
