Tools to help you support your patients in managing their bone health

Women treated for breast cancer have a 40% increased incidence of osteoporosis, a 30% increased risk of fracture, and a 20% increased risk of hospitalization due to fracture. Unfortunately, many women are unaware of, or do not know how to manage, their increased risk.

From 2015 to 2017, at the Segal Cancer Centre at the Montreal Jewish General Hospital, our team developed and implemented a clinical model in which a nurse and a physiotherapist assessed and intervened for bone health among women treated for breast cancer. During this endeavour, we created and refined the patient tools that are now available on this website. Below, you can download the evaluation forms and teaching aids that were used by our nurse and physiotherapist. If you are looking to refresh your knowledge on the topic, you will also find a list of relevant publications and continuing education opportunities.
