Patient outcomes could be measurably improved if physicians were better able to…

Differentiate between male and female osteoporosis, understanding that, although prevalence is lower in men, they are at increased risk for hip fracture and mortality

 
Recognize that increased clinical vigilance for both osteoporosis and hypogonadism will lead to improved healthcare outcomes

 
Diagnose and evaluate symptoms of hypogonadism and osteoporosis

 
Review treatment options that will improve hypogonadism and low bone mineral density

 

This activity:

Met my expectations
