IOF-ISCD collaboration to create courses setting highest standards in diagnostic training
Date:4/15/2011

Two leading international organizations in the bone field are joining forces to establish a global series of training courses. The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and the International Society for Clinical Densitometry (ISCD) have agreed to work together to develop an exciting new series of training courses which will set new standards in health education in the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis.

IOF President Professor John Kanis said, "IOF and ISCD share a joint commitment to providing the highest standard of excellence in osteoporosis diagnostic training for health professionals around the world. We believe that the synergies between the two organizations will allow us to develop a top quality training programme that will serve to raise the standards of knowledge in the field as never before."

The Joint ISCD-IOF Osteoporosis Diagnostic & Management Courses will be held on a worldwide basis, and will offer modules that focus on the principles and practices of osteoporosis diagnostic techniques. The courses will also cover the latest knowledge on physiology, epidemiology, diagnosis and management of osteoporosis.

ISCD President Professor Didier Hans commented, "We believe there are no borders in education and it is our mission to form strategic alliances with those who can contribute to advancing excellence in skeletal health assessment and clinical osteoporosis management. Pilot joint courses were successfully held in Latin America in cooperation with the ISCD's Ibero-American Panel. We now look forward to a successful collaboration with IOF on a worldwide basis and are currently advancing the Course programme with the aim of holding the first international course in the coming months."
