181257 - Critical Consultations in Osteoporosis
To reduce the rate of fractures due to osteoporosis.
The aim of this program is to increase the prioritisation and effectiveness of fracture prevention consultations.
Relevance to General Practice
GPs have a key role to play in the reduction of the burden of osteoporotic fractures. The information and skills learnt will improve outcomes for patients at risk of fracture. In addition, the prioritisation skills discussed can be applied across the management of other chronic diseases in general practice.
- Prioritise consultations for chronic disease, such as osteoporosis, to ensure timely diagnosis and effective ongoing management to reduce risk of fracture.
- Assess the characteristics and preferences of the patient in order to individualise appropriate treatment of osteoporosis.
- Determine individual need for treatment and lifestyle modifications to reduce fracture risk.
- Design education strategies to enhance patients understanding of their disease to improve self-management in chronic diseases.
- Create practice systems to support patient adherence to their management plan.
