This module uses a case based approach to discussing the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis and prevention of fragility fractures, incorporating the guidance from NICE, SIGN and National Osteoporosis Guidelines Group (NOGG) and identifying the differences between them where relevant. It highlights ‘at risk’ groups and discusses the FRAX and QFracture risk assessment tools, giving the opportunity to use them in the scenarios presented. Your knowledge of management options is tested and guidance is offered on when to refer to secondary care. The module discusses how often to monitor patients at risk of fragility fractures and provides suggestions for resources that clinicians can use with their patients.
