Own the Bone Webinar: Assessing Osteoporosis Risk Factors
On Thursday, May 26, 2016, at 6:00 pm EST, the Own the Bone initiative will offer a webinar titled “Assessing Risk factors to Determine Osteoporosis Treatment.”
John Schousboe, MD, PhD, director of the Osteoporosis Center at Park Nicollet Clinic in Minnesota, will discuss how to identify the factors that make patients more susceptible to fragility fractures. Learn about the tools available to help you evaluate patient fracture risk, including the most well known, FRAX, and two additional validated tools.
The American Orthopaedic Association (AOA) developed Own the Bone as a quality improvement program to address the osteoporosis treatment gap and prevent subsequent fragility fractures.
