Osteoporosis Custom Form

The 2010 Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Osteoporosis in Canada and the 2015 Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Frail Elderly offer evidence-based screening and treatment recommendations for adults over 50 years. We have developed an osteoporosis and falls assessment tool in PDF and for PS Suite (Telus) and OSCAR EMR users. The tool is based on the guidelines, that can be integrated into the electronic medical records (EMR) with the aim of improving osteoporosis-related care in family practice.

When to use this form:

 

  1. Screening patients without a previous diagnosis of osteoporosis
  2. Reassessing patients for osteoporosis follow up
  3. Reassessing patients with a fall and/or fracture related events

Suggestions for use:

 

  1. Current patient needs Bone Mineral Density (BMD) test
  2. Assessment/re-assessment of patients ≥ 65 years
  3. Reassessment of patients on osteoporosis treatment
  4. Patients 50 and over with a fragility fracture
