Background

The aim of this important meeting is to update current guidelines on The Prevention of Osteoporotic Fractures in Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACFs). The conclusions of the meeting will be published in a high impact journal. As an example, conclusions from the previous consensus meeting were published in JAMDA in 2016.

Invitations

We would like to invite GPs who regularly attend RACFs, geriatricians, rehabilitation specialists, physicians, physiotherapists and pharmacists working in aged care. We would like to particularly encourage GPs who regularly attend RACFs to register and would value their contribution to these very important guidelines.

Meeting details

The meeting will be on Friday, 30 October 2020, from 9:00am – 1:00pm, via Zoom (due to the COVID-19 pandemic).
