e-Learning osteoporosis module

The Royal Osteoporosis Society has worked with the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) to create an e-learning module all about the diagnosis and management of patients with osteoporosis. The module:

  • uses a case based approach to discussing the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis and prevention of fragility fractures, incorporating the guidance from NICE, SIGN and NOGG
  • highlights ‘at risk’ groups and discusses the FRAX and QFracture risk assessment tools, offering the opportunity to use these for the cases discussed
  • tests your knowledge of management options and offers guidance on when to refer to secondary care
  • discusses how often to monitor patients with osteoporosis and osteopenia and provides suggestions for resources that clinicians can use with their patients.

The module is CPD accredited by the RCGP.

The e-learning is available for healthcare professionals and you will need to register for a free RCGP e-learning account- to access registration or log into the RCGP e-learning platfom click start learning.

 

This course was developed with the assistance of a grant from UCB. UCB had no input or editorial control over the design or content.
