Advisory board: TBC
Osteoporosis has traditionally been considered a 'silent' disease; if development of the
disease is not prevented or the disease is untreated, osteoporosis can progress painlessly until a bone becomes fragile and prone to fracture. Any bone can be affected and the disease affects both men and women, despite the common perception of patients with
osteoporosis as 'hunchbacked old women'. Therefore, accurate diagnosis of signs and symptoms of disease that could cause osteoporotic fractures and patient education are key competencies for GPs.
The 10-minute consultation: osteoporosis will provide a holistic approach to the assessment and management of osteoporosis, stressing the importance of ongoing patient review and recall to ensure delivery of high-quality, evidence-based treatment.
