Webinar: Breaking the Cycle of Recurrent Fracture
August 2, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
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
