When managing osteoporosis, we’re dealing with a very vulnerable cohort of patients, older patients, patients at risk of fractures, patients we don’t want in hospitals, and these patients also are the COVID-19 cohort of concern. Patients may not believe that osteoporosis treatment and prevention is high on their list when they’re so preoccupied with concerns about getting sick, but we as their treating doctors need to emphasise the importance of continuous treatment and facilitate measures to help patients keep it as simple as possible.
