Assessing fracture risk – Guideline debrief (2 CPD hours)



Full CPD module

This case-based learning module uses five case histories to guide you through the NICE guidance on assessing fracture risk, released last month.

Learning objectives

To improve your understanding of:

  • NICE guideline CG 146 ‘Osteoporosis: assessing the risk of fragility fractures’
  • FRAX and QFracture risk assessment tools
  • How this guideline can be implemented in primary care
  • The potential impact of the guideline on the QOF osteoporosis domain

In this interactive module, you will learn as you work through real-life primary care patient scenarios. You will be assessed before starting the module and again at the end, to gauge how your knowledge has improved.

You don’t have to complete the whole module in one sitting. You can break off at any point mid-module and pick up again where you left off by pressing the Resume Module button alongside the module title in your Pulse Learning CPD log.
