Does Patient Partnership in Continuing Medical Education (CME) Improve the Outcome in Osteoporosis Management.
Pazirandeh, Mahmood
Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions, v22 n3 p142-51 Sum 2002
Patients (n=672) were screened and instructed about osteoporosis; 53 of their physicians attended lectures, a control group did not. A survey of 258 patients showed doctor-ordered screening tests increased regardless of lecture attendance. Increased patient-initiated discussions about osteoporosis suggest that patient education is effective. (Contains 46 references.) (SK)
