ICON is collaborating with the Italian Intersociety Commission on Osteoporosis, we are pleased to communicate the activation of a project of nursing education entitled “New strategies in nurse training in fragility fracture management”, with the sponsorship of EFORT, ESCEO, EUGMS, FFN, IAGG ER, ICON and IOF.

A workshop, with experienced nurses in fragility fractures, from nearly all European countries, took place 15/16 May 2017 at the San Servolo Island, home of the Venice International University (VIU) and European Interdisciplinary Council on Aging (EICA).

The goal of this project is to generate a core curriculum to be distributed with a peer education method in different settings of nursing education, under the coordination of experienced nurses present. This education programme would be used as a trace for improving nurses competencies in the management of Fragility Fracture throughout Europé.
