Fragility Fractures and Orthogeriatrics
As the current population in North America lives longer, the incidence and prevalence of fragility fractures is expected to increase. Co-morbidities that directly affect bone will likely escalate. All practitioners who treat older adults will need the necessary knowledge and skills to provide patient care. This course will address several areas that physicians may find challenging such as fragility fractures, osteoporotic bone and ortho geriatrics.
