Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:28th Jan 2013
The aim of the PREVOST program is to assess the efficiency of patient-centered osteoporosis prevention program, after a fragility fracture of the upper limb, to improve post-fracture management of osteoporosis (ie BMD test and / or osteoporosis treatment) in women over 50 years old. This open randomized controlled trial aims to compare the BMD or osteoporosis treatment prescription rate at 6 months after inclusion between two groups: "intervention" receiving information on fracture and osteoporosis (oral and written), phone call reminders and written information to give to their family physician, and "control" receiving usual care without information.
