The 9th International Symposium on Osteoporosis (ISO9), sponsored by the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF), is designed to provide the most current, clinically relevant and evidence-based information on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of osteoporosis. This is accomplished through in-depth educational sessions addressing primary and secondary osteoporosis, clinical considerations and therapeutics, socio-behavioral medicine, nutrition, education and emerging science.

Overall Outcome Objectives

After participating in the 9th International Symposium on Osteoporosis participants should be able to:

  • Perform appropriate clinical assessments to properly diagnose osteoporosis and low bone mass
  • Determine treatment options that consider both the secondary conditions and the osteoporosis
  • Apply clinical decision-making tools for osteoporosis management within the medical practice environment
  • Differentiate among  FDA-approved medications and select appropriate therapies as indicated
  • Utilize primary, secondary and tertiary treatment modalities for osteoporosis across the continuum of care
  • Develop patient and consumer education programs within their practice and community
  • Comprehend emerging science and its affect on the future of osteoporosis care
