Engaging Patients in Osteoporosis Care: Start Early, Never Stop

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

With an increasing number of individuals at risk for and diagnosed
with osteoporosis, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians have opportunities
to engage patients and collaborate with health care providers in the
delivery of patient-centered care. It is essential for those involved in osteoporosis
care to review the basics, including its pathophysiology, identify risk factors
to conduct appropriate screening following national guideline recommendations,
evaluate diagnostic results, and select an individualized evidence-based
treatment option. Patient engagement and care plan development include discussion
of the above in addition to lifestyle and self-care promotion.
