The management of patients with osteoporosis frequently requires clinical decisions in the setting of insufficient medical evidence. As a continuation of last year's successful webinar on the same topic, this is a panel discussion of common scenarios where clinical practice guidelines and randomized placebo-controlled clinical trials may not provide clear answers to clinical questions. Osteoporosis experts will provide insights on applying their clinical skills with the best available medical evidence to care for these patients.
