Why should you attend?

Health professionals in the Asia-Pacific are facing a rapidly ageing population. If you’re a physician, clinical researcher or allied health professional this key regional event will help you learn how to…

  • identify patients at imminent high risk of fracture and how to prevent secondary fractures
  • manage and treat osteoporosis, including through knowledge of the latest drug treatments and nutritional recommendations
  • manage patients post-fracture (including fracture healing, orthobiologics, rehabilitation etc)
  • address sarcopenia in your elderly patients by learning about the latest nutritional and physical recommendations
  • manage bone loss in diabetics, transplantation patients, and cancer patients

Meet-the-Expert sessions, ‘speed dating’ with the professors and an interactive exhibition area will give delegates the opportunity to discuss with world experts, learn about the latest products and services, and mingle with the colleagues from throughout the region. The Meeting will also be the premier venue for the presentation of new research in the field, and particularly research from the region.

The programme is of interest to a broad range of physicians and allied health professionals, including general practitioners and internists, rheumatologists, orthopaedic surgeons, endocrinologists, geriatricians, radiologists, pharmacists, rehabilitation specialists, physiotherapists, nutritionists, and orthpaedic nurses.
