Over 10 million individuals in the United States have osteoporosis; over 43 million have low bone mass, according to estimates from the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF). Paget's disease of the bone occurs in 1% of the older U.S. population. It's important to correctly recognize and treat Paget's disease in order to provide relief of symptoms and prevent complications. In addition to osteoporosis and Paget's disease, there are rare metabolic bone diseases such as Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Fibrous Dysplasia, Hypophosphatasia that also impact the U.S. population.
Greater clinician understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of osteoporosis and other bone diseases will improve clinical outcomes for many patients. This course takes an in-depth look at these diseases of the bone and provides details on how to screen, diagnose and treat your patients.
