OVERVIEW AND INSTRUCTIONS

Osteoporosis awareness is becoming increasingly widespread. Nutrition professionals must be aware of the etiology of osteoporosis, as well as prevention and treatment. There are more women and older adults than ever participating in community and outreach health programs, and seeking independent nutritionists for consultation about their bone health. To meet the nutritional needs of those who are concerned about their bone health, nutrition professionals must understand the rationale for specific nutrient and health recommendations in both preventive health and therapeutic nutrition.
This self-directed, accredited CPE program begins with an explanation of the prevalence and impact of osteoporosis, and the basics of bone metabolism. These chapters are followed by diagnosing osteoporosis, a chapter on the risk factors for osteoporosis, and how biochemical measures of bone metabolism may be used. A more extensive chapter on the types of bone fracture lends insight into both prevention and treatment, which follows in chapters 7, 8, and 9. Two case studies provide practice and application.
This self-directed learning program is a Level 2 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) program approved for nine (9) Continuing Professional Education Units (CPEUs). That means that the reader has general knowledge of the literature and professional practice within the area covered. The focus of the program is to enhance knowledge and application.
To get the most benefit from this program, we suggest you adhere to the following four steps:
Step 1: Review the objectives for the CPE program.
Step 2: Study each chapter. As you read, think of patients from your own practice who fit the situation described.
Step 3: Assess what you have learned by completing the self-assessment instrument at the end of this CPE program.
Step 4: Compare your answers with the answer key that has been provided. If you score at least 80% correct (40 questions), transfer your answers to the Continuing Professional Education Reporting Form. If you scored less than 80% correct, re-read this CPE program until you are able to score at least 80% correct.
After you have successfully completed the program, complete the CPE REPORTING FORM and:
