What challenges or opportunities are you trying to address within the problem? (200 characters or less)

Patients are focused on pain and immobility after a fracture. They are not ready to think about preventing the next fracture. Soon after healing, they move on, excusing the break as clumsiness.

Hi Kathleen Cody 
I am aware that you have submitted a really good idea on Post discharge advocacy.
Is this another idea you are interested in posting or is it just a draft?

If you are in the process of submitting a new idea, please do so fast.
My humble advice to you is to please go ahead and update your idea ASAP and fill in all the details. You can keep editing it here till the deadline but make sure to publish to get quick feedback.
The DEADLINE for idea submission is Wednesday July 3rd, 2019 5pm PST.

Please make sure your idea does the following:
1) Clearly define the problem
2)Connects to at least one opportunity area
3) States how & when user accesses the solution
4) Tells the story

Please update and submit your draft asap. If it is still in draft by the deadline on July 3rd, it will be published in its current state, unless you tell us not to.
