What other GPs said after completing this module
The module is useful in my line of practice. As an orthopaedic doctor, 60% 0f my patients are 50 years old above. Knowledge of risk factors and associated investigation in this group are paramount. Also knowing adverse effect of therapy and the alternative therapies is very important.

The guidelines of osteoporosis is summarised well. However it would have been more interesting if it was case based.
