Help us develop resources on osteoporosis and fracture prevention!

FCO, in collaboration with GERAS and Osteoporosis Canada, is developing materials on osteoporosis and fracture prevention for Family Councils to help increase awareness of and knowledge about osteoporosis and fracture prevention within their Long-Term Care Homes, thereby helping to promote good bone health among LTC residents.

To help FCO develop these materials and make them useful for Family Councils, we’re recruiting Family Council members to participate in a review committee to provide feedback on the materials as they are developed.

  • Be willing to consult with your Family Council to gather feedback on knowledge exchange materials developed, if requested
  • Be comfortable agreeing to non-disclosure of materials until publication
  • Be willing to commit to the review committee until March 31st 2018

Logistics requirements
