Quick access

Target participants: General trauma surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, geriatricians, and medicine physicians who want to:

− Improve their surgical and medical care of patients with fragility fractures 
− Make improvements in their hospital's and department's approach to fracture care in older adults

Participants should be actively involved in fragility fracture care. In addition, surgeon participants should have completed the AOTrauma Courses—Basic Principles and Advanced Principles of Fracture Management. 

Course description: A combination of case-based and evidence-based lectures, case presentations, and small-group case discussions will be used to deliver the content and to discuss the key surgical, medical, and system-of-care issues in a co-managed care approach, as well as the latest surgical techniques. Facilitated by an expert faculty consisting of both surgeons and medicine physicians, an important focus will be placed on small group work and discussions. Active engagement by all participants is critical to the effective delivery of this educational event.
