New guide for older people

Older people can do a lot for their own health. The BIPS has now published three new leaflets with tips on dealing with osteoporosis, rheumatism and vitamin D deficiency and on prevention of the three conditions.

The leaflets inform about adverse health effects and their formation, about risk groups, as well as about ways of prevention and alleviation. Tips specially tailored to physical activity, nutrition and healthy behaviour complement the information.

The Department of Prevention and Evaluation has been publishing leaflets with tips on nutrition in child day care centers and on handling food hygienically for a long time. Research at BIPS also intensely focuses on the health of older people. Consequently a first set of information leaflets for older people have been developed. The leaflets will be updated and  supplemented in future.

The guide can be found on our internet site under publications.
