Abstract

The European Foundation for Osteoporosis and Bone Disease (EFFO), the Royal College of Physicians, the European Community and the National Osteoporosis Foundation of the USA (NOF) have recently published guidelines for the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis. All adopt case-finding strategies but the conceptual approach between the European and North American guidelines differs fundamentally. This gives rise to differences in the populations identified for assessment and treatment.
