Learning Objectives
  • Who to refer for a DXA scan
  • How/when to use a FRAX
  • Treatment options for Osteoporosis
A 70 year old female patient has a symptomatic compression fracture of her thoracic spine. Which of the following is true?
the of treated patients that are needed to cause osteonecrosis of the jaw nnh is rouhgly
The # of treated patients that are needed to cause osteonecrosis of the jaw (NNH) is rouhgly:
the of treated osteoporosis patients that are needed to prevent any fracture nnt is roughly
The # of treated osteoporosis patients that are needed to prevent any fracture (NNT) is roughly:

On a scale of 1-5 with 1 being no confidence and 5 being very confident, rate your confidence in your ability to decide ho to treat Osteoporosis in elderly females:


220/613=35.9% of patients seen (females 65+) had a DEXA scan documented it was done or referred

N=116 (done ‘yes’) + 104 (order ‘yes’)=220



158/170=92.9% of those patients who had a frax calculated and documented, the resident reported the results had influence on clinical decision

A 70 year old woman has been taking 20 mgs of oxycodone every 6 hours for two weeks for pain related to a pelvic fracture. A reasonable next step in her pain management would be to initiate a long acting opioid such as:

  • MSContin 60 mg BID
  • Fentanyl transdermal 75 mcg
  • Oxycontin 20 mg BID
  • Methadone 20 mg BID
Which of the following medications might be useful in the management of neuropathic pain in the elderly?
  • Anticonvulsants
  • Topical anesthetics
