Introduction to Frailty

Frailty is a clinical state that is associated with many negative outcomes, including falls, harm events and disability or death. It is estimated that 25-50% of the population aged 85 years and over can be classified as frail and, as such, most physiotherapists will encounter frail patients. This course will introduce frailty and provide you with key insights on how it impacts patients and their quality of life.

Osteoporosis

Current practice is moving towards the prevention and early diagnosis of osteoporosis. Millions are spent every year on the prevention, management, and consequences of osteoporosis and osteoporosis-related fractures. The most commonly reported osteoporotic fractures are femur and forearm fractures, but the number of unreported, non-traumatic lumbar fractures is also very high. In this course, Scott Buxton provides a full overview of osteoporosis from the biology of bone to the pathological processes. He also introduces risk stratification tools for the prevention and early diagnosis of this condition.
