Osteoporosis and fracture prevention resources

In collaboration with GERAS and Osteoporosis Canada, FCO has developed resources to increase awareness of and knowledge about osteoporosis and fracture prevention among LTC residents’ families. These resources can be used by the Family Councils to increase awareness of and knowledge about osteoporosis/fracture prevention within their Long-Term Care Homes, thereby helping to promote good bone health among LTC residents.

The resources include:

Osteoporosis and Fracture Prevention Resource List for Family Councils

Osteoporosis and fracture prevention talk sheet

Recommendations for Preventing Fracture in Long-Term Care infographic

Living with risk video (on YouTube)

 

You can read more about the project and the resources on our website.
