Training Day for Primary Care Practitioners: Osteoporosis and Metabolic Bone Diseases
Birmingham, Wednesday 12 September 2018
The Bone Research Society has identified the need for a training day aimed at helping Primary Care Practitioners to diagnose, treat and manage osteoporosis and metabolic bone diseases, and how to recognise when referral is appropriate.
With a focus on practical, actionable information, the training day will cover a wide range of topics including raised calcium, raised alkaline phosphatase, fracture risk assessment, drug holidays, calcium supplements, osteogenesis imperfecta, renal bone disease, falls and rickets.
On completion of the training day, it is expected that participants will be able to:
● Assess and investigate metabolic bone diseases in primary care
● Identify when a referral to secondary care is appropriate for further management
● Understand and use latest available guidelines in metabolic bone diseases
● Confidently apply, evaluate and modify primary care treatment in response to the changing needs of the patient
Organised by Dr Richard Keen and Dr Judith Bubbear of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital at Stanmore, the training day will be delivered by a faculty of experts in a friendly and interactive manner.
When: Wednesday 12 September
Where: Central Birmingham.
Cost: Full day including lunch - £75
