Treatment To Prevent Fractures in Men and Women With Low Bone Density or Osteoporosis: An Update
Outline of Material
The material begins with an introduction to low bone density (LBD), its prevalence, and interventions to treat the disorder. Systematic review methods used to create the CER are described. The clinical questions addressed by the CER are presented. The results of studies and the evidence-based conclusions on the comparative effectiveness and safety of treatments to prevent fractures in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis are described. Gaps in knowledge and future research needs revealed by the systematic review process are presented. Some suggestions are made about what to discuss with patients and their caregivers, based on the review findings.
