Summary of Findings
- The research was condcuted to examine the relationship between oral corticosteroid prescriptions and fracture preventive care and major osteoporotic fractures.
- Those with high-intensity oral corticosteroid prescriptions received more fracture preventive care compared to those with low-intensity prescriptions.
- The investigators found no significant difference in major osteoporotic fracture rates between high- and low-intensity oral corticosteroid prescription groups.
- Sensitivity analyses showed that a higher cumulative corticosteroid dose in a shorter time frame or with fewer prescriptions led to increased fracture preventive care prescribing.
