Are you confident implementing recent osteoporosis recommendations in your clinical practice? Despite clear guidance, screening rates remain suboptimal and many clinicians are hesitant to implement pharmacologic therapy. This 15-minute case-based CE activity, developed by experts Dr Rachel Pessah-Pollack and Dr Steven Petak, addresses screening, diagnosis, treatment strategies, and patient-specific treatment considerations for osteoporosis.
The target audience for this educational initiative is primary care physicians, gynecologists, endocrinologists, rheumatologists, and orthopedists.
Upon completion of the educational activity, participants should be able to:
• DEMONSTRATE appropriate screening approaches for patients who are at risk for osteoporosis, using tools such as Fracture Risk Assessment Tool (FRAX) scoring and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) bone mineral density scans
• IMPLEMENT accurate diagnostic decision-making based on patient-specific factors and results of tools such as FRAX scoring and DXA bone mineral density scans
• DESCRIBE updated guideline-recommended osteoporosis treatment algorithms, including risk stratification categories and possible drug treatment options
• SELECT appropriate patient-specific pharmacologic therapy for osteoporosis based on risk stratification and prior treatment experience
