Virtual Webinar


Webinar Overview:

Although osteoporosis is most prevalent among postmenopausal women, both genders and all age groups are at risk. Nevertheless, the condition is still overlooked and undertreated. Despite a plethora of prevention and screening recommendations, not many patients receive early diagnosis and effective care.

During this satellite symposium, a multidisciplinary panel will discuss the impact osteoporosis has on patients and the innovative strategies—pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic—that can improve outcomes. They will also present patient cases, review recent treatment guidelines, and examine the latest information on anti-catabolic and anabolic agents.

The learning objectives of this program are:

  • Discuss practical screening approaches in the primary care setting for patients at risk for osteoporosis
  • Outline guideline recommendations for use of osteoporosis therapies
  • Assess the efficacy and safety of current and emerging osteoporosis therapies
  • Develop multidisciplinary, individualized treatment plans for osteoporosis care in patients with complex needs

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward OB/GYNs. PCPs, NPs, and PAs who treat women with osteoporosis are also invited to participate.
