Osteoporosis remains underdiagnosed and undertreated in Australia1
This chronic disease management program, supported by Amgen, provides healthcare professionals with a comprehensive range of education resources and tools to assist in identifying and diagnosing patients at risk of osteoporotic fractures.
In 2021, it is estimated that an osteoporotic fracture will occur every 2.9 minutes in Australia2
Approximately 50% of people will experience another osteoporotic fracture after their first one3
Osteoporosis can have serious consequences; 10-20% of those with a hip fracture will enter an aged-care facility for the first time and 20% will perish within 12 months4
Yet, 70-80% of people are not diagnosed and treated for osteoporosis after a fracture5
