On behalf of the local organizing committee, we have the great pleasure and honour to invite you to the FFN Global Congress in Oslo October 3rd – 6th 2023.
Oslo is a hidden gem surprisingly rich in culture – and unusually close to nature, and well connected with the world. We offer accommodation to suit most budgets. Thanks to a small but nice city centre, we would like to call the FFN in Oslo a “Compact Congress”, located between the blue fjord and the green forest.
The title of the congress is: Enlightening fragility fracture care
The title is referring to the special light we can have in Norway – the Northern Light (Aurora borealis) – that we cannot promise that you will see in Oslo. We can, however, promise an interesting program full of inspiring sessions enlightening and aiming to improve care for fragility fracture patients.
The program consists of plenary sessions with leading professionals from orthopaedic surgery, geriatric medicine, physiotherapy, nursing, nutrition, and osteoporosis care.
FFN and the congress have a multidisciplinary approach because we believe that fragility fracture patients get better care when different health professions collaborate. Workshops will bring together experts from different professions to find the best solutions for our patients.
Topics will cover the four pillars of FFN; acute multidisciplinary care of fracture patients, rapid rehabilitation, secondary prevention of new fractures, and forming national alliances to persuade politicians and promote best practice.
The pre-congress program on October 3rd will be arranged by the FFN Special Interest Groups, including programs for nurses, physiotherapists and secondary prevention.
We hope you will join us in Oslo, and as the host of the FFN Congress we will make every effort to ensure a memorable congress for you. We aim to not only provide an exciting program, but also by enlightening and facilitate contacts between participants coming from all over the world, in order to improve the evidence-based treatment of our patients.
