    • Overview

      Clinicians may be unaware of how much calcium and vitamin D are necessary for good bone health but they may not be familiar with best practice methods regarding evaluation of osteoporosis using DXA and biochemical markers. Furthermore, clinicians may not be up-to-date regarding current and emerging therapies for the treatment of osteoporosis. Because it is important for clinicians to be familiar with these areas, as osteoporosis results in decreased bone strength and an increased risk of fracture, this monograph will seek to increase clinician familiarity.
