About this course

One-in-four hip fractures occur in men and people are being diagnosed with osteoporosis at younger and younger ages. Osteoporosis is a complex condition that is generally not well understood. It requires careful analysis for accurate assessment and fracture prevention. Because osteoporosis is largely preventable, many people are fracturing unnecessarily and these injuries have massive impacts on people's lives (and deaths).

Dr Lani Simpson is the recognised specialist in this field. In her comprehensive course, she explores the must-know topics in the causes, testing and management of osteoporosis. Covered in detail are the testing methods that provide clarity on bone health and Lani also reveals the effects that our hormones have on bone structure and integrity. Importantly, she outlines what you need to weigh up when a patient is taking any of the various osteoporosis medications.

Nutrition and exercise to prevent and limit bone loss is discussed in detail with practical suggestions for your patients. She also explores the role of gut health and explains why a healthy gastrointestinal system is crucial for bone health.You will come away from this class with a deep understanding of bone physiology and great strategies for fighting fractures in all ages and both sexes.
