  Purpose

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by reduced bone mass and increased skeletal fragility, predisposing to an increased fracture risk. The presence of a low trauma fracture is a powerfull predictor of future fractures and about 50% of patients with a fragility fracture will suffer a subsequent fracture in the next 10 years (Center JR, 2007). Osteoporotic fractures are associated with an increased morbidity and mortality but also high financial costs. However, less than 20% of patients presenting a low trauma fracture receive an appropriate post-fracture osteoporosis management (Little and Eccles, 2010). The hypothesis of a lack of information and an under assessment of consequences by both patients and physicians has been raised to explain this gap between recommanded care and usual practices.

The aim of the PREVOST program is to assess the efficiency of patient-centered osteoporosis prevention program, after a fragility fracture of the upper limb, to improve post-fracture management of osteoporosis (ie BMD test and / or osteoporosis treatment) in women over 50 years old.

This open randomized controlled trial aims to compare the BMD or osteoporosis treatment prescription rate at 6 months after inclusion between two groups: "intervention" receiving information on fracture and osteoporosis (oral and written), phone call reminders and written information to give to their family physician, and "control" receiving usual care without information.

Further study details as provided by Institut National de la Santé Et de la Recherche Médicale, France:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of women in the 2 groups who initiated a management of osteoporosis at 6 months (BMD or osteoporosis treatment prescription). [ Time Frame: 6 months after inclusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    At 6 months, women will be asked whether or not they received a BMD test prescription and/or an osteoporosis treatment prescription by their physician.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of women in the two groups who performed BMD at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months after inclusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    At 6 months, women who received a BMD prescription will be asked whether or not they performed a BMD test; if they realized a BMD test, their result will be asked.

  • Proportion of women in the two groups with an increased perception of fracture risk. [ Time Frame: 6 months after inclusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Women will answer the same questionnaire at inclusion and at 6 months to assess their fracture risk perception.

  • Proportion of women in the two groups who changed their behaviour in order to prevent future fractures: regular practice of physical activity, dairy products consumption and calcium and vitamin D supplementation. [ Time Frame: 6 months after inclusion. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Women will answer the same questionnaire at inclusion and at 6 months to assess their behaviour towards fracture risk or prevention of osteoporosis: physical activity, dairy products consumption and calcium and vitamin D supplementation

  • Proportion of women who improved their knowledge about osteoporosis [ Time Frame: 6 months after inclusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Women will answer the same questionnaire at inclusion and at 6 months to assess their osteoporosis perception and knowledge (risk factors, severity,consequences, treatments)


Estimated Enrollment: 446
Study Start Date: March 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Intervention
Osteoporosis prevention program: Women will receive oral and written information and advices on osteoporosis, a letter and a leaflet on osteoporosis management to give to their family physician, and phone call reminders.
Behavioral: Osteoporosis prevention program
Women will receive an oral information and advices on osteoporosis, a written leaflet on osteoporosis (risk factors, diagnosis, prevention and treatments), a letter and a leaflet on osteoporosis management to give to their family physician and phone call reminders (D15, D30, D45) to advise them to consult their family physician and, if they have a BMD prescription, to perform their BMD
No Intervention: Control
Control women will receive usual post-fracture care without information
