Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Bone health and falls are important issues for older adults. Despite years of research, large scale studies, and many therapeutic options, there are many grey areas that remain regarding the care of older adults with osteoporosis and falls.
The therapeutics of osteoporosis and osteopenia, including the duration and safety of the medications, and interventions for prevention, are controversial. Falls are a challenging geriatric syndrome, and represent the most common form of accident in older adults.
This Special Issue will include a range of articles regarding bone disease and falls, including, epidemiology, basic science, and clinical studies that focus on assessment, management, or prevention.
