dc.description.abstractFragility fractures occur due to decreased bone density (BMD) and are are of concern for both men and women. These fractures result from low energy mechanism and most frequently involve spine, hip, and wrist. If BMD is not addressed, patients can have subsequent fractures. We are interested in determining the effectiveness of the medical community at diagnosing and managingsteoporosis. We hypothesize that our current current protocol is efficient at osteoporosis screening and subsequent treatment 75% of the time.eng
