Project Description

To date, clinical research and therapeutic trials in osteoporosis have largely focused on the pathophysiology and management of postmenopausal osteoporosis, while osteoporosis in adults with CP remains poorly understood. In chronic neurological conditions such as CP where falls and mobility dysfunction are common, the optimisation of bone health is paramount, as fractures will further limit mobility and lead to significant morbidity and reduction in quality of life. This grant aims to address current evidence gaps in this area.
