Osteoporosis in real practice: Answers to common clinical questions
1. Identify indications for treating osteoporosis especially in patients with a normal bone density as measured by the T score and quantify the benefits of treatment including the NNT for osteoporosis in primary and secondary prevention for vertebral, non vertebral and hip fractures amongst the various pharmacotherapies;
2. Define treatment duration amongst the various patient risk groups, and in those with fragility fractures how the site of fragility fracture might influence treatment duration;
3. Define the role of bone turnover markers (and useful reference ranges) and identify criteria indicating treatment failure and the causes thereof while developing clinical approaches to intervene;
4. Identify patients treated with bisphospohates in whom drug holidays are appropriate and elaborate strategies on how to monitor and reassess these patients over time;
5. Identify patients who are candidates for anabolic agents and define the role of the choices of molecules available and how to choose one over the other;
6. Define treatment duration for denosumab and if stopped for a clinical reason, define strategies of sequential therapy. Define sequential therapy following discontinuation of and the anabolic agents, PTH analog and anti sclerostin inhibitor, and how to reassess over time.

5. Évaluer le positionnement d’un traitement biologique comme options thérapeutiques.
