Fragility Fracture Nursing Excerpt :

This open access book aims to provide a comprehensive but practical overview of the knowledge required for the assessment and management of the older adult with or at risk of fragility fracture. It considers this from the perspectives of all of the settings in which this group of patients receive nursing care. Globally, a fragility fracture is estimated to occur every 3 seconds. This amounts to 25 000 fractures per day or 9 million per year. The financial costs are reported to be: 32 billion EUR per year in Europe and 20 billon USD in the United States. As the population of China ages, the cost of hip fracture care there is likely to reach 1.25 billion USD by 2020 and 265 billion by 2050 (International Osteoporosis Foundation 2016). Consequently, the need for nursing for patients with fragility fracture across the world is immense. Fragility fracture is one of the foremost challenges for health care providers, and the impact of each one of those expected 9 million hip fractures is significant pain, disability, reduced quality of life, loss of independence and decreased life expectancy. There is a need for coordinated, multi-disciplinary models of care for secondary fracture prevention based on the increasing evidence that such models make a difference. There is also a need to promote and facilitate high quality, evidence-based effective care to those who suffer a fragility fracture with a focus on the best outcomes for recovery, rehabilitation and secondary prevention of further fracture. The care community has to understand better the experience of fragility fracture from the perspective of the patient so that direct improvements in care can be based on the perspectives of the users. This book supports these needs by providing a comprehensive approach to nursing practice in fragility fracture care.

Orthogeriatrics Excerpt :

This new open access edition supported by the Fragility Fracture Network aims at giving the widest possible dissemination on fragility fracture (especially hip fracture) management and notably in countries where this expertise is sorely needed. It has been extensively revised and updated by the experts of this network to provide a unique and reliable content in one single volume. Throughout the book, attention is given to the difficult question of how to provide best practice in countries where the discipline of geriatric medicine is not well established and resources for secondary prevention are scarce. The revised and updated chapters on the epidemiology of hip fractures, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, surgery, anaesthesia, medical management of frailty, peri-operative complications, rehabilitation and nursing are supplemented by six new chapters. These include an overview of the multidisciplinary approach to fragility fractures and new contributions on pre-hospital care, treatment in the emergency room, falls prevention, nutrition and systems for audit. The reader will have an exhaustive overview and will gain essential, practical knowledge on how best to manage fractures in elderly patients and how to develop clinical systems that do so reliably.

Anabolic Treatments for Osteoporosis Excerpt :

Osteoporosis, a growing epidemic among women in North America, Europe, and Japan, is a painful, costly disease that has presented a treatment challenge to healthcare professionals. Until recently, therapies have focused on agents that slow bone resorption, and have had only limited success at increasing bone mass. However, exciting new developments are on the verge of changing the treatment of this debilitating disorder. Two anabolic agents, the parathyroid hormone (PTH) and the fluoride ion, show tremendous promise as tools for building and retaining bone - with no adverse side effects. Anabolic Treatments for Osteoporosis is a comprehensive account of the latest studies that have been carried out on these two agents, and a thorough assessment of their prospects as osteoporosis therapeutics. This unique book combines basic science and up-to-date clinical data to present a complete picture of this breakthrough in the treatment of a globally significant health issue.

An Examination of Fragility Fractures that Occur in Ontario Workplaces Excerpt :

Due to the aging population and increasing labour participation of older individuals, many workers are at risk for fragility fractures. Evidence is required to determine where prevention efforts should be targeted. The objective of this thesis was to examine fragility fractures (or fractures resulting from same-level falls) that occur in the workplace with respect to the characteristics of the workers who sustain these fractures, and the circumstances leading to fracture. Methods included descriptive quantitative analyses and open card sorting with stakeholders to develop prevention recommendations. Phase I examined workersâ compensation data on same-level falls to compare fracture and non-fracture injuries among workers 20-80 years (Study-1). Subsequently, same-level fall fractures among workers 50-80 years were categorized as potential fragility fractures and other fractures, and compared (Study-2). Phase II used survey data on working fragility fracture patients 50 years and older to compare fragility fractures occurring at work and elsewhere (Study-3). Lastly, workplace fragility fractures were examined to develop prevention recommendations (Study-4). Many occupational sectors appear suitable targets for prevention, and tailoring may increase the appropriateness of an intervention. Based on fracture volumes, it may be prudent to focus on forearm fractures and workers aged 50-64 years for secondary fracture prevention initiatives. The workplace setting may provide opportunities to reach men. However, there is an overall lack of awareness among fragility fracture patients regarding their risk for fractures. Stakeholders recommended improving worker-environment interactions to limit exposure to potential fracture hazards, and increasing awareness of hazards, osteoporosis and fracture risk. These recommendations could be addressed by leveraging existing workplace slip, trip and fall prevention programs and employing a workplace-based chronic disease management prog

Interdisciplinary Nutritional Management and Care for Older Adults Excerpt :

This open access book aims to primarily support nurses as leaders and champions of multimodal, Interdisciplinary nutrition care for older adults. A structured approach to fundamentals of nutrition care across Interdisciplinary settings is combined with additional short chapters about special topics in geriatric nutrition. The book is designed to provide highly accessible information on evidence-based management and care for older adults, with a focus on practical guidance and advice across acute, rehabilitation, and primary and secondary malnutrition prevention settings.The cost of malnutrition in England alone has been estimated to be 119.6 billion per year, or more than 15% of the total public expenditure on health and social care. ^65 years). The importance and benefit of specialised nutrition care, delivered by experts in field, is well established for those with complex nutrition care needs. However, despite the substantial adverse impact of malnutrition on patient and healthcare outcomes, specialised management of this condition is often under-resourced, overlooked and under-prioritised by both older adults and their treating teams. As an alternative, timely, efficient, and effective supportive nutrition care opportunities may be appropriately implemented by nurses and non-specialist Interdisciplinary healthcare team members, working together with nutrition specialists and the older adults they care for. Practical, low-risk opportunities should be considered across nutrition screening, assessment, intervention, and monitoring domains for many patients with, or at risk of malnutrition. Whilst a variety of team members may contribute to supportive nutrition care, the nursing profession provide a clear focal point. Nurses across diverse settings provide the backbone for Interdisciplinary teamwork and essential patient care. The nursing profession should consequently be considered best placed to administer Interdisciplinary, multimodal nutrition care, wherever spe

Osteoporosis in Men Excerpt :

Since the publication of the first edition, the U.S. Surgeon General released the first-ever report on bone health and osteoporosis in October 2004. This report focuses even more attention on the devastating impact osteoporosis has on millions of lives. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 2 million American men have osteoporosis, and another 12 million are at risk for this disease. Yet despite the large number of men affected, the lack of awareness by doctors and their patients puts men at a higher risk that the condition may go undiagnosed and untreated. It is estimated that one-fifth to one-third of all hip fractures occur in men. This second edition brings on board John Bilezikian and Dirk Vanderschueren as editors with Eric Orwoll. The table of contents is more than doubling with 58 planned chapters. The format is larger – 8.5 x 11. This edition of Osteoporosis in Men brings together even more eminent investigators and clinicians to interpret developments in this growing field, and describe state-of-the-art research as well as practical approaches to diagnosis, prevention and therapy. Brings together more eminent investigators and clinicians to interpret developments in this growing field.

Pocket Reference to Osteoporosis Excerpt :

This book responds to the daily needs of all clinicians treating patients with osteoporosis and provides a key reference guide for any challenges that arise in clinical practice. This book also covers the genetics of the disease, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and current and upcoming treatment recommendations in accordance with the latest international guidelines. Osteoporosis is a disease in which the density and quality of bone are greatly reduced, and as bones become more porous and fragile the risk of fracture increases greatly. It is one of the most common metabolic bone diseases globally with one in three women and one in five men at risk of an osteoporotic fracture, and can result in devastating physical, psychosocial, and economic consequences. However, in spite of this osteoporosis can often be overlooked and undertreated, thus there is a real need to raise awareness of this disease.
