Event Details

Details: Clinical audit | RACGP: 40 points | ACRRM: 7 hours | GPs only

Overview: By 2022, it is estimated that 6.2 million Australians older than 50 years of age will have osteoporosis or osteopenia, placing them at high risk of minimal trauma fracture. Timely diagnosis and appropriate pharmacological management are essential to reduce osteoporotic fracture rates. However, fractures are often not linked to osteoporosis, or are seen as unimportant. The disease therefore remains underdiagnosed and undertreated in Australian General Practice.

This program aims to support identification, evaluation and treatment of patients at high risk of osteoporotic fracture.
