Oh Yes for Osteoporosis Treatment!

PPA was proud to support Amgen Australia and Healthy Bones Australia this week, with their patient and clinicians briefing with the Parliamentary Friends of Pain Management, Co-Chaired by Tasmanian Senators Wendy Askew and Helen Polley, both born and bred Launcestonians.

Sadly, poor bone health affects over 6 million Australian adults over the age of 50, with osteoporosis leading to over 183,000 fractures annually. Fractures severely impact the lives of people affected and have a large cost impact on the healthcare system. Indeed, in Australia, osteoporosis is under-diagnosed and undertreated with as many as 80% of patients failing to receive appropriate investigation and treatment post fracture. Early diagnosis and treating people at risk appropriately is the solution.

At the morning tea, patients and clinicians made the case for better Osteoporosis treatment. Check out the video below to hear directly from patients about their lived experience with osteoporosis.
