Long-term care (LTC) residents are more dependent, frail and vulnerable, and require more complex care than community-dwelling older adults. Yet many interventions intended to reduce fracture risk are not used consistently in LTC, and clinical practice guidelines for osteoporosis have focused on the care of adults living in the community.
This session aims to address existing care gaps by illustrating the application of pharmacological and non-pharmacological fracture prevention recommendations with frail older adults in LTC.
