|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03537846|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : May 25, 2018

Osteoporosis is characterized by low bone mineral density and alterations in bone microarchitecture, leading to bone fragility and high risk of fractures. In the peri-menopausal period and during menopause, estrogen deficiency is responsible for an acceleration of bone remodeling. It is therefore important to sensitize women to this pathology at the beginning of menopause.
Osteoporosis is a public health issue with more than 3 million women in France suffering from almost ¼ of the population over 50 years old. Paradoxically, the number of bone densitometry and prescribed osteoporosis drugs are decreasing. There is an under-screening and a disinterest of the pathology on the part of the medical world and the patients.
The investigators hypothesize that women lack knowledge about osteoporosis. This study will identify these gaps, and put in place appropriate strategies to improve this knowledge.
For this purpose, a descriptive cross-sectional observational study will carry out, through the fulfillment of self-administered questionnaire for women over 30 years old. The main objective is to assess the knowledge of women, about osteoporosis and its consequences. The judgment criterion is based on a percentage of correct answers per question. The interests of the study are to identify gaps in knowledge, to optimize the investigator's therapeutic education, to fight patient wait-and-see and false beliefs, and finally to improve adherence and longer-term adherence.
