Management of Osteoporosis in Survivors of Adult Cancers With Nonmetastatic Disease: ASCO Clinical Practice Guideline

This is a clinical practice guideline for adult patients who are receiving treatment for non-metastatic cancer, as well as adult cancer survivors. Recommendations are provided for the management of osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures in these patients. The guideline specifically discusses which patients are at an increased risk for developing osteoporotic fractures, how these patients should be screened for, which patients should be treated for their osteoporosis, and which interventions should be used (i.e. which interventions are effective at reducing the risk of fracture).
