Physiotherapists and Osteoporosis

I recently attended the National Osteoporosis Foundation annual meeting in New Orleans and met Josee Delisle. Josee is a Clinical Nurse Specialist and researcher at Hopital Jean Talon in Montreal. She is currently leading a 10 year study (of 543 patients) on the effectiveness of a liaison program for patients with systemic fractures. The program is managed by clinical nurse specialists instead of orthopaedic surgeons.

In this video interview, I ask Josee to talk about the program and specifically the role Physiotherapists play in the treatment of osteoporosis. This is the third interview in a three part series:
