As part of the Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy, Osteoporosis Canada and Women’s College Hospital have collaborated on the development of an inter-professional education series presented via telemedicine. “Beyond the Break” targets health professionals working with people living with osteoporosis and/or at high fracture risk. Delivered by a multi-disciplinary healthcare team specializing in osteoporosis management, this modular series is designed to provide updates on the latest advances in recognition, diagnosis, treatment and education on osteoporosis. Part One of each module provides updates on the latest scientific and best practices that impact the care of osteoporosis patients, while Part Two puts science into action through clinical application.
Launched in January 2013, to date the series has presented 5 two-part modules on a variety of topics including an overview of osteoporosis, fracture risk assessment, medication and treatment, osteoporosis and nutrition and osteoporosis and physical activity. The series has been very well received via live videoconference, live webcast and archived participation of over 1500 viewers. The archived sessions can be accessed via: click here
