Osteoporosis – Hot topics (2 CPD hours)

This module uses three typical GP case studies to update you on recent development on new NICE guidance on assessing fracture risk, changes to QOF, safety concerns about bisphosphonates and calcium supplements and important new research on the frequency of DXA scanning. 

Learning objectives


To improve your understanding of:

  • Case finding in osteoporosis
  • Assessment and management of fracture risk
  • Treatment options for osteoporosis

In this interactive module, you will learn as you work through four 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.
