Brief description Osteoporosis is ranked the 7th national health priority, in recognition of the enormous impact on quality of life and greater risk of mortality following osteoporotic fracture. With few exceptions, socially disadvantaged individuals tend to have poorer health outcomes. However, little is known of psychosocial and socioeconomic determinants of osteoporosis, and barriers to preventive healthcare. This project will inform future health promotion messages targeted toward those most at risk.
