Summary The Falls and Fracture Clinic was developed to provide a comprehensive assessment for older adults with a risk or history of falls and fractures.
The Falls and Fracture Clinic was developed to provide a comprehensive assessment for older adults with a risk or history of falls and fractures. As part of this clinic, older adults undertake assessments for their bone mineral density, body composition, function, nutrition and medical history to determine their risk of falls and fractures. With sarcopenia (the loss of muscle mass, strength and function) and osteoporosis being highly prevalent in this population, this project will aim to assess and increase knowledge of osteosarcopenia in older adults.
