Osteoporosis affects more than half of the population over 50; less than one in four are offered screening and the majority of people find out they have it after they have experienced an osteoporotic fracture. Early intervention and appropriate lifestyle changes (and treatment where appropriate) can make a meaningful difference for people and reduce the risk of a first, or second fracture.

This will be an interactive workshop focusing on:
-Osteoporosis as a disease state in primary care, which can be identified and managed
-Osteoporosis as a chronic disease which can be identified and managed in primary care
-Practical solutions which a busy practice can implement to make a difference for patients

The purpose of the session is to provide delegates with insights into the small but meaningful changes that can be made in a primary care centre with multiple priorities and issues to make changes to the way chronic diseases are identified, recalled and managed.

The Australian Primary Health Care Association acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
