Osteosarcopenia: Preventing Falls and Fractures in Older Persons

Although healthcare professionals may be aware of the importance of fall prevention in older persons, the newness of sarcopenia and osteosarcopenia means these conditions are rarely diagnosed and risks identified for falls and fractures.
To address this knowledge gap, Prof Gustavo Duque from the University of Melbourne and the Australian Institute for Musculoskeletal Science (AIMSS) assembled a multidisciplinary team to develop an education course specifically designed for busy healthcare professionals.
This highly interactive course provides healthcare professionals with the tools to effectively identify at-risk patients, manage and treat these new diseases.
