Have you reviewed the 2020 AACE Postmenopausal (PMO) Clinical Practice Guidelines? This course delves into key recommendations the new guidelines provide using clinical cases to illustrate important points. Recognizing PMO as the correct diagnosis is key; issues such as fracture risk, symptoms and patient background must be considered. Once a patient has been diagnosed, is pharmacologic treatment a good option? What should be done if a patient has been on pharmacologic treatment for several years? The five clinical cases in the course provide you the opportunity to apply the new guidelines to patient situations. Discover how you can apply the guidelines to your practice.
- Evaluate how fracture risk is assessed and when osteoporosis is diagnosed.
- Describe the fundamental measures for bone health.
- Identify who meets guidance for receipt of pharmacologic therapy and proper medication(s) to treat osteoporosis.
- Recognize successful treatment of osteoporosis, sequential use of therapies and how long patients should be treated.
- Appreciate how to monitor treatment holidays.
