The Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy for Long-Term Care (LTC) aims to increase awareness about fracture prevention specifically for older adults living with frailty in LTC and to support fracture risk-reduction. With a well-established bone health research program, the Geras Centre for Aging Research has been involved in leading the Osteoporosis Strategy in LTC and, in collaboration with key stakeholders has developed a variety of awareness raising and fracture prevention knowledge products and tools targeted to health professionals and LTC resident and their families.
