About the webinar
Long-term care (LTC) residents are more dependent, frail and vulnerable, and require more complex care than community-dwelling older adults. Yet many interventions intended to reduce fracture risk are not used consistently in LTC, and clinical practice guidelines for osteoporosis have focused on the care of adults living in the community.
This program aims to address existing care gaps by illustrating the application of pharmacological and non-pharmacological fracture prevention recommendations with frail older adults in LTC.
Presented in collaboration with the Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy. There is no cost to attend.
After active engagement in this program, participants will be better able to:
1. Apply the LTC Fracture Prevention guideline recommendations.
2. Recognize challenges and barriers to implement the recommendations and use enablers.
3. Manage fracture prevention in high-risk patients with multiple chronic conditions.
