Research Update: Data collection for the Lydia Osteoporosis Project 2 completed in September 2017


We recruited research participants for the above Action Research and Evaluation Project in an NHS Scotland Health Board. Frontline healthcare staff  gained experience of a highly interactive online education module, Caring for my bones,  created by experienced academic and healthcare staff working alongside learning technologists at QMU. This work draws on the findings from the first Lydia Osteoporosis Project. We invited patient participants who are known to have osteoporosis to contribute to this work by sharing their experiences of acute care. Please look out for a report on the preliminry findings arising from this research.
