Program Description

Despite the availability of treatments proven to reduce fracture risk and the accumulating evidence that osteoporosis treatment can prolong life, osteoporosis remains underdiagnosed and undertreated. Only about 20 percent of patients with hip fractures receive treatment to reduce the risk of future fractures. Each week, bone health experts and other clinicians from around the world come together to listen to a brief didactic in the latest topics in bone health and discuss complex cases around treating patients with osteoporosis and other bone disorders. The aim of Bone Health TeleECHO is to improve the care of patients with osteoporosis and reduce the osteoporosis treatment gap.

Target Audience

Physicians, specialists, advanced practice providers, RNs, medical assistants, and other healthcare professionals.
