Osteoporosis Learning Center

As osteoporosis prevalence increases in parallel to the aging of the population, the number of fragility fractures is projected to increase from about 2 million in 2005 to 3 million in 2025. Thankfully, osteoporosis is a preventable disease that can be diagnosed and managed before any fracture occurs. Nevertheless, it remains underdiagnosed and undertreated in the United States, and fracture risk is poorly addressed even in patients who have already sustained a first fracture. This series of myCME™ Case Clinics addresses the spectrum of care in osteoporosis management, including risk factors, screening, diagnosis, treatment, follow-up, and shared decision-making with patients. Patient video vignettes accentuate the human element of the problem and provide practical guidance to clinicians from a patient’s perspective.
