Description

Who is the Study Day for?

The programme is designed to engage all health professionals who work with people with or at risk of osteoporosis and/or fragility fractures including; GPs and hospital doctors, specialist nurses, practice, district and community nurses, pharmacists, radiographers, community falls teams and specialist therapists and residential/nursing care staff.

Why target osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis causes fragile bones, which can lead to painful and disabling fractures, particularly in the hip and spine. 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men over the age of 50 will break a bone, mainly because of poor bone health. Almost three million people in the UK are estimated to have osteoporosis. There are more than 300,000 fragility fractures every year, including 70,000 hip fractures. Ten percent of people suffering a hip fracture die within 30 days and 30 per cent will be dead within a year.
