Taking learning online

We were delighted to have more than 500 delegates from 15 different countries join us for our Osteoporosis Online event on 1 December 2020. Sign up to our newsletter for updates about future digital learning events. 

At our 2020 event, we explored:

  • the priority areas for research to bring us closer to a cure for osteoporosis
  • latest research across the field though oral abstract presentations and ePoster exhibition
  • the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on osteoporosis patients and fracture prevention pathways
  • best practice in conducting effective virtual consultations
  • new and emerging technology in the identification of osteoporosis, fracture risk and bone mass measurement
