UK National Osteoporosis Guideline Group (NOGG) launches 2017 update

6771
New NICE-accredited guideline includes a number of updates on risk assessment, management and treatments.

IOF is pleased to announce that the UK National Osteoporosis Guideline Group (NOGG) 2017 Update has now been released via the NOGG website (www.shef.ac.uk/NOGG/).  This new Guideline, accredited by NICE, includes a number of updates on risk assessment, management and treatments.

An obvious change is the alteration to the age-related assessment and intervention thresholds so that these now remain constant from the age of 70 years upwards.  The thresholds remain automatically accessible from the FRAX UK risk assessment tool

The full NOGG 2017 Guideline, and an updated Patient Information Leaflet are available in PDF formats from the website.  The Full Guideline has also recently been published in Archives of Osteoporosis
