The IOF Tour: Updates on Osteoporosis is an initiative of IOF’s regional office for Latin America. The international seminar complements the IOF Advanced Training Course in Osteoporosis, focusing on hot topics in the field of osteoporosis and addressing the challenges and controversies in clinical management of patients with osteoporosis.

Dr. Bruno Muzzi, member of the IOF Council of Latin American Scientific Advisers (RAC) and scientific coordinator of the activity in Brazil, stated:

The 2017 scientific program covers patient assessment tools (DXA, FRAX, TBS, RX) and the use of pharmacological agents for osteoporosis (bisphosphonates, denosumab, sex hormones and teriparatide). In addition, it addresses possible side effects (esophagitis, osteonecrosis of the jaw, atypical fractures, hypercalcemia) and indications, while the topic of individualized duration of treatment is discussed through clinical case scenarios."

As always the IOF Tour counts on the use of interactive tools during the presentations to guarantee the participation of the audience. In this way, participants will be able to discuss clinical cases through their Smartphone and make the experience and debate more enriching.
