Abstract

It has been well‐documented that many patients in Australia who have experienced osteoporotic fractures do no receive treatment for preventing further fractures.1, 2 We have recently performed a heel ultrasound screening program based in rural community pharmacies involving women aged older than 65 years.3 Women were ineligible for screening if they were currently diagnosed with osteoporosis, had had a Dual energy X‐ray absorptiometry scan in the previous two years or were currently treated with a bisphosphonate, raloxifene, calcitriol, or calcitonin.
