  Purpose

Emphasis in treating osteoporosis has been on T-scores rather than overall fracture risk. FRAX (Fracture Risk Assessment Tool) supports a risk sensitive approach to osteoporosis treatment by providing an absolute fracture risk. FRAX combined with a decision aid may promote a shared decision making approach with patients, allowing the clinician and patient to weigh potential fracture risk (without treatment), versus risk reduction with medication (including side effects and costs). OSTEOPOROSIS CHOICE II will test the effectiveness of:

  • FRAX
  • FRAX + decision aid
  • Usual care (no decision aid and no FRAX given to clinician)

Condition Intervention
Osteoporosis
Osteopenia
Fragility Fractures
Behavioral: FRAX + Decision Aid
Behavioral: FRAX estimated fracture risk

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Subject)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Medication start/stop, knowledge, and patient involvement. [ Time Frame: Baseline and at 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Decisional quality. [ Time Frame: Baseline and at 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 79
Study Start Date: May 2009
Study Completion Date: February 2011
Primary Completion Date: February 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: FRAX + Decision Aid Behavioral: FRAX + Decision Aid
Clinicians will present patient's with their individualized risk of osteoporotic fracture in 10 years, based on the FRAX risk calculator, as well as sharing a decision aid with them, which shows their risk of fracture, risk reduction on medications, as well as the downsides of the medications.
Other Name: Decision Support
No Intervention: Usual care
Experimental: FRAX estimated fracture risk Behavioral: FRAX estimated fracture risk
The clinician is provided with the patient's estimated risk of fracture as computed by the FRAX
Other Name: Risk estimate
