Goals of the course
Participants will learn how the overall care of the elderly, multimorbid fracture patient can be substantially improved. Since the fracture represents only part of the problem, orthogeriatric comanagement of the patient from admission to completion of rehabilitation is the optimal approach to address all aspects. This course presents the latest evidence on the comprehensive management of the elderly fracture patient, with the aim of changing attitudes and improving the care of this patient group.   

Target participants
Surgeon participants should have completed the AOTrauma Courses–Principles in Operative Fracture Management and Advances in Operative Fracture Management.  General trauma surgeons, orthopaedic 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 approach to fragility fracture care
 

Course description

A combination of lectures, case presentations, small-group case discussions, and breakout activities will be used to deliver content and to discuss the key surgical, medical, and system-of-care issues in a comanaged care approach, as well as the latest techniques. Facilitated by an International

Faculty consisting of both surgeons and medicine physicians, an important focus will be placed on small group work and discussions. Active participation from all participants and faculty is critical to the effective delivery of this educational event.
