Osteoporosis and Low Trauma Fractures
Fractures occuring due to osteoporosis are frighteningly common and undiagnosed. Join Kate Bell for this update and follow on from her lecture entitled "Fragile Bones - Minimal Trauma Fractures in the Older Person" to learn about how osteoporosis affects the bone and the ongoing consequences this can have for the person affected.
Kate has worked in a major tertiary hospital in Queensland since 2007. Her work has centred on general orthopaedic nursing including trauma, aged care and making the link between low trauma fracture and osteoporosis. Kate's qualifications include a Masters of Nurse Practitioner Studies (special interest in Osteoporosis) and Graduate Certificate in Nursing (Ageing and Dementia Studies). Kate is passionate about sharing information and improving the identification and treatment of osteoporosis in ageing adults.
