This online course has been organised by Richard Eastell (Sheffield) and Núria Guañabens (Barcelona) on behalf of the ECTS Clinical Action Group. It will be held on 2 and 3 September 2021. It is a two-day course covering basic topics such as anatomy, physiology and diagnostic testing and this first course will consider these in the context of rare bone diseases, focal bone diseases and secondary osteoporosis.
The course is aimed at clinicians in training with a particular interest in the field of bone and mineral metabolism and metabolic bone diseases, such as osteoporosis. It is also of interest to specialists willing to update their knowledge, allied health professionals, and industry delegates.
The training course will:
- Inform about metabolic bone diseases and disorders of mineral homeostasis
- Discuss cases to illustrate key points in diagnosis and treatment
- Identify clinical guidelines that should be followed, with particular emphasis on guidelines produced or endorsed by ECTS
- Offer advice about management of individual cases
We are so fortunate in the ECTS to have so many leading clinical experts on these topics and we have made the most of this by including them in our programme of lectures and workshops. This is the first such training course organised by the ECTS and a second course is planned for 2022, hopefully in person.
