October 24 and 25

Know our cause

Due to the fast and growing population aging, with an increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, Latin America will face, in the coming decades, a pandemic of hip fractures and other fragility fractures. However, the region’s current health systems are not yet adequately prepared to deal with this important challenge.

The Fragility Fracture Network (FFN) is a global organization, which aims to create a multidisciplinary network of specialists to improve the treatment and secondary prevention of fragility fractures, discussing ways to implement a more appropriate and humanized care path for fractures for fragility.

Experts from Latin America and other countries will discuss 4 pillars

I

Multidisciplinary co-management of the acute fracture episode, especially hip fractures

II

Excellent rehabilitation to restore maximum function and quality of life

III

Secondary prevention after every fragility fracture, addressing both osteoporosis and falls

IV

Multidisciplinary national alliances that can achieve necessary changes in healthcare policy

Registrations

Registration is free and includes automatic membership to global FFN, which is also free and does not entail any obligations. Your subscription will give you access to the Member’s Area resources, which includes newsletters and other communications.
