OVERVIEW AND INSTRUCTIONS

Osteoporosis awareness is increasing. Nutrition professionals must be aware of osteoporosis etiology, prevention, and treatment. More women and older adults than ever are participating in community and outreach health programs and seeking independent nutritionists for a 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 prevention and treatment, which follow 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 program's focus is to enhance knowledge and application.
To benefit from this program, we suggest you adhere to the following four steps:
Step 1: Review the CPE program objectives.
Step 2: Study each chapter. As you read, think of patients from your 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 score at least 80% correct.
After you have completed the program, fill out the CPE REPORTING FORM and the MANDATORY Critical Thinking Evaluation Tool (CTT) which, per CDR, that must be completed by all credentialed practitioners per CDR and:
