Abstract

Osteoporotic fractures have a detrimental impact on health and quality of life, are more common in older women and are costly to treat. Screening to identify older women at high risk of fracture has the potential to offer substantial benefits. Understanding women's and professionals' experiences of screening will inform the implementation of screening in routine care.
