Reviewing the bone building matrix that occurs from childhood through to adulthood, the theory component will ensure the learner has a thorough understanding of the development of osteoporosis, and the latest research available. The practical component will look at the APPI’s 12 step bone building program that has been designed to address the main areas that osteoporotic fractures occur.
