Statement of Need

A bone-healthy lifestyle includes a diet that is rich in vitamins and nutrients, regular exercise, and avoidance of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. This, along with essential nutrients calcium and vitamin D, contribute to optimal bone health. Inadequate dietary intake of calcium and vitamin D for long periods of time can cause osteopenia, which can lead to osteoporosis as well as placing individuals at risk for falls and fractures. Fragility fractures due to osteoporosis have far-reaching consequences and pose a burden to sufferers, their family, and the economy. Additionally, osteoporosis is most often associated with women, but one in three osteoporotic fractures occurs in men and the consequences tend to be more severe than in when. Clinicians need to evaluate their male patients for osteoporosis.

While vitamin D and calcium supplementation are broadly recommended to treat and prevent osteoporosis, there are contrasting viewpoints regarding their efficacy and safety. Deep understanding of this research is necessary to contextualize this data for individual patients that may not be achieving adequate intake via diet.

This CME Outfitters live symposium features expert faculty and an interactive, case-based program that will teach the importance of utilizing validated PROMIS® (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System) measures to assess treatment progress and monitor disease. Join us for this symposium and heighten your awareness of the need of evaluation and treatment of osteoporosis beyond women to include men.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize the prevalence and impact of osteoporosis in older men and initiate an assessment of bone health.
  • Assess the safety and efficacy data for calcium and vitamin D supplementation in reducing fracture risk.
  • Implement PROs into clinical workflow to measure change in function and quality of life in patients with osteoporosis.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

  • Recognize the prevalence and impact of osteoporosis in older men and initiate an assessment of bone health.
  • Assess the safety and efficacy data for calcium and vitamin D supplementation in reducing fracture risk.
  • Explain how PROs may be implemented into clinical workflow to measure change in function and quality of life in patients with osteoporosis.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Pfizer Inc.

Target Audience

Endocrinologists, orthopedists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and pharmacists who treat patients with osteoporosis.
