Webinar: Breaking the Cycle of Recurrent Fracture

August 2, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

How a research partnership between patients, health providers, decision makers and researchers is improving the lives of people with osteoporosis

This webinar highlights a patient-oriented research team’s project to address a gap in osteoporosis care identified by patients and health providers. Dr. Sonia Singh brought together a group of leaders, health care providers and patients from Fraser Health to develop a health care model that would prevent additional breaks in patients admitted to hospital with an initial fracture. Results were so impressive that local decision-makers have found a way to fund the program on a permanent basis.

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe a process for bringing together a patient-oriented research team of all four stakeholder groups (patients, health providers, decision-makers and researchers)
  • Describe a process for securing funding from multiple sources for a patient-oriented research project
  • Describe a project’s success in being funded by a health authority
