- 2012-Current: Fragility fracture prevention project: This project is an IRB approved retrospective study focused on hip fracture patients treated in our community. Using retrospective data on over 300 patients, I started a fracture liaison service based on the AOA “Own the Bone” Program. I ran this program with an RN in addition to my regular practice until we hired a full time NP. Every patient over age 50 with a low energy fracture is offered screening for osteoporosis and nearly 300 patients have entered the program.
- 2013-2015: Hip fracture Outcomes Project: Working with a multi-disciplinary team including geriatrics and utilizing best practices from the international geriatric fracture society we improved the care of hip fracture patients and have decreased 30 day mortality from 12.7% 2011-2013 to 3.9% in 2015 which is better than the national average of 3.1%.
