Description

Overdiagnosis is considered a risk associated with the diagnosis of osteoporosis – as many people diagnosed won’t experience harm from the condition. As yet there’s little evidence on community understanding of overdiagnosis outside cancer- where it is an established risk of some screening programs – or effective ways to communicate about it. We examined community understanding around overdiagnosis of osteoporosis, to optimise communication strategies about this problem.

The data generated by the focus groups study is provided in Excel format below.
