QMU launched new ‘Caring for my Bones’ interactive open access course 21st January 2019. 


QMU’s Lydia Osteoporosis ProjectTeam, together with Nursing and AHP collaborators in Lothian and QMU’s Centre for Academic Practice, have created an exciting education course to help raise awareness of osteoporosis and implications for practice. Suitable for all practitioners working with older persons at high risk of fracture, we are meeting a need for accessible, high quality practical guidance that addresses one of today’s top current public health issues.

To date we have had nurses, AHPs, teachers, care workers, university students on healthcare courses and clinical leads completing the course, and the reach has been local, UK, Europe and International!

The course will remain open for now as we are continuing to welcome new course participants. We will keep the course open until early September 2019. 

Your views on the course content are always welcome via the discussion areas and in the evaluation at the end. To date, participants who complete have provided very positive feedback. We understand the range of learning resources, including our bespoke moving and handling videos are going down well!
