Consensus statements on osteoporosis diagnosis, prevention, and management in the Philippines



Consensus statements on osteoporosis diagnosis, prevention, and management in the Philippines



International Journal of Rheumatic Diseases 14(3): 223-238



The consensus statements were developed to assist healthcare practitioners in providing optimal care to postmenopausal individuals at risk for osteoporosis and fragility fractures in the local setting. The Technical Review Committee formed by the Osteoporosis Society of the Philippines Foundation Inc. in cooperation with the Philippine Orthopedic Association drafted, retrieved available published evidence, and appraised important issues on osteoporosis and fragility fractures. The Appraisal of Guidelines Research and Evaluation instrument was used to appraise published guidelines while a systematic way of validating the quality of evidence and the level of recommendation was done using the GRADE system. A multidisciplinary panel of experts and stakeholders in an en banc meeting conferred and approved the recommendations. There were five key issues on preventive, seven on diagnostic, nine on therapeutic aspects of osteoporosis with four other surgical concerns on fragility fractures. All were approved by a panel of stakeholders through a majority vote. These statements will best inform the clinicians and the specialists including orthopedic surgeons and general care practitioners on issues of postmenopausal Filipino women at risk for osteoporosis and fragility fractures.
