Welcome to the Nursing Times Learning online training course on osteoporosis management. Osteoporosis is a bone disease in which a reduction in bone density predisposes to bone fracture.
This unit is one of many online courses for nurses available from Nursing Times, the UK's leading independent, peer-reviewed journal for nurses. It will teach you:
- About the prevalence of osteoporosis and related fractures
- How to explain the risk factors that predispose patients to fracture
- About the importance of adapting management strategies according to a patient’s age and medical history
- How to distinguish between relevant drug options considering risks, benefits, side-effects and efficacy
