Do you want to improve your confidence in screening, diagnosing, and optimizing care for patients with osteoporosis, including those with moderate risk?

Through small-group discussions and case analysis, Osteoporosis and Fracture Prevention addresses key issues – including osteoporosis-related fractures, secondary causes and current care gaps – and examines pharmacological treatment options, opportunities for non-pharmacological treatment, and drug holidays.

After active engagement in this program, participants will be better able to:

  • Recognize the current care gap in osteoporosis fracture care including barriers and facilitators of quality care
  • Recognize and describe the impact of osteoporotic fracture
  • Apply a selective evidence-based approach to bone mineral density testing
  • Assess and apply pharmacology and non-pharmacology strategies for patients at high risk of fractures
  • Describe risks and benefits of treatment options to support shared decision making with patients and provide patients with guidance about osteoporosis management by linking them with resources for self-management

This workshop is hosted by the Ontario College of Family Physicians.
