Call for Workshop Proposal
Deadline: 31 January 2020
The Global Fragility Fracture Network calls for submissions of proposals to host a workshop at the Congress in Toronto, 24 – 26 September 2020
Workshops need to address at least one of the key areas of the patient care journey as described in the Fragility Fracture Network Call to Action that has been endorsed by over 80 international organisations.
The key areas of the journey of care in people with fragility fractures (hip, clinical vertebral or other major fracture following a fall from stand height or less) are:
- Acute multidisciplinary care for people who suffer hip, clinical vertebral and other major fragility fractures
- Rehabilitation and ongoing post-acute care of people whose ability to function is impaired by hip and other major fragility fractures
- Rapid secondary prevention after first occurrence of all fragility fractures, including those in younger people as well as those in older persons, to prevent future fractures
- Formation of national alliances between relevant professional associations to persuade politicians and promote best practice among colleagues
- In addressing a key area you may choose a particular part of that key area of the patient care journey such as delirium management. Another example may be follow-up after initial fracture prevention intervention.
The key area of care that you wish to address in your proposed workshop should be informed through one or more of the following:
- Evidence published or presented in a peer-reviewed format – journal or conference
- A quality improvement activity that has been determined to be used in other contexts other than your own local situation – other countries could utilize your activity with minor adjustments
- The outcomes of a jurisdictional implementation process e.g. a state or national change in practice that has produced positive outcomes for patients and health systems.
