Description: A sample of Canadian orthopedic surgeons expressed willingness to participate in osteoporosis management for fragility fracture patients
E.R. Bogoch, E. Snowden Can J Surg, Vol. 51, No. 1, February 2008
Conclusion: Most of the Canadian orthopedic surgeons sampled consider themselves to be currently engaged or ready to engage in osteoporosis care for fragility fracture patients. Focus should now shift from education and persuasion to program support through provision of resources and system modification that will enable Canadian orthopedic surgeons to effectively manage osteoporosis in their fracture patients.
