The Osteoporosis and Fracture Prevention Program is an opportunity to enhance your learning in screening, diagnosing, and optimizing care for patients with osteoporosis, including those with moderate risk. Through small-group discussions and case analysis, this workshop addresses key issues including osteoporosis-related fractures, secondary causes, current care gaps and examines treatment options. This program is currently being redeveloped.
