  • Overview

    No bones about it – The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) has estimated that eight million women already have osteoporosis, and another approximately 44 million may have low bone mass placing them at increased risk for osteoporosis.  Moreover, an estimated two million osteoporotic fractures occur every year in the United States; by 2025 that number may reach three million.  Osteoporosis sneaks up on most people. Often referred to as a “silent” disease, many patients never learn they have osteoporosis until they suffer a fracture.  This knowledge-based activity will educate pharmacists on the diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis, as well as the importance of counseling patients to adhere to lifestyle modifications and treatment.
