Practical management of fracture risk among peri- and postmenopausal women
Fractures and their consequences are the clinically important manifestation of osteoporosis; preventing fractures is the primary goal of management. Effective management is achievable given present knowledge and tools but is seldom prescribed. This review will cover the individual and social burden of fracture, essential information about fracture risk and its estimation, an approach to patient care emphasizing specific information to elicit and therapeutic strategies to pursue, and existing gaps in knowledge and important questions for future research.
