Join our webinar on post-fracture nutritional care

The free Capture the Fracture webinar, led by international expert Prof. René Rizzoli, will take place on January 15, 2019 at 17:00 (Paris time). Register now!

Nutrition plays an important role in bone health, both for preventing a fracture, or healing of bone after a fracture. Appropriate administration of nutrients such as Calcium, Vitamin D, or macronutrients such as proteins, are crucial to reducing fracture risk.

Inadequate intake of nutrients adversely affects bone healing and raises the risk of a secondary fracture. Therefore, a well-planned nutritional intervention after having the first fracture is essential.

We invite you to join our latest Capture the Fracture webinar, led by expert Prof. Rizzoli, to learn about the following topics:

  • Identification of fractured patients at risk of malnutrition
  • Evaluation of malnutrition severity in various types of fractures
  • Review of the various nutritional interventions (dietary, supplements, specific amino acids)
  • Review of the outcomes of dietary/supplements intervention in fracture patients (rehabilitation, length of stay, mortality, fracture healing, refracture rates, etc.)
  • Overview of how FLS improves nutritional management of patients and reduces secondary fractures

... and much more.

About Capture the Fracture®

Capture the Fracture® (CTF) is a multi-stakeholder initiative led by the International Osteoporosis Foundation. The initiative hopes to drive changes at local and international levels, so that secondary fracture prevention becomes a reality. Its aim is to set global best practices for Fracture Liaison Services (FLS), while serving as a benchmark tool to which clinics and hospitals can adhere and aspire to, and receive international recognition. The CTF programme has a diverse set of tools that provides essential resources and documentation to drive quality improvement in FLS; CTF also offers mentorship programmes that support development of FLS at the local level. Currently the CTF network includes more than 328 FLS in 41 countries. #CaptureTheFracture
