Description

P2P Workshop: Appropriate Use of Drug Therapies for Osteoporotic Fracture Prevention

The workshop, which is free and open to the public, is designed for researchers, practitioners, and other professionals who are interested in fracture prevention and the use of osteoporosis drugs.

This P2P
workshop will assess the available scientific evidence to better understand the appropriate use of drugs for osteoporotic fracture prevention, specifically addressing the following questions:

  1. What are the benefits and risks (including major adverse events) of osteoporotic drugs with short-term use (from first-use up to 3–5 years of treatment)? What factors influence outcomes?
  2. What are the benefits and risks of osteoporotic drugs over the longer term (for treatment periods longer than 3–5 years)? What factors influence outcomes?
  3. Do drug holidays improve outcomes?
  4. What patient and clinician factors impact the use of and adherence to osteoporotic drugs?
