Your committee?s strategic plan SWOT;analyses revealed the following information.;Background;The purpose of this project is to create an intervention prevention program;that minimizes osteoporosis in women over 50 and with the health risks;associated with the condition for Anywhere, USA. Per the Centers for;Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), abstracted from medical claims data, ?an;estimated 10 million Americans have osteoporosis and 34 million Americans;have low bone mass, placing them at an increased risk for osteoporosis. An;analysis, using the Anywhere, USA state hospital database shows a slightly;higher rate of risk than the national average. The report shows that;osteoporosis is responsible for more than 1.5 million fractures annually;including 300,000 hip fractures, 700,000 vertebral fractures, 250,000 wrist;fractures, and more than 300,000 fractures of other sites. Osteoporosis can;be prevented. Early diagnosis and treatment can reduce or prevent fractures;from occurring?. (CMS 2007);The;Committee Objectives;1. To research and identify best community partners and interventions;for prevention of high risk osteoporosis residents in Anywhere, USA.;2. To use create a health promotion marketing plan for early bone;density screening targeted throughout the Anywhere, USA communities.;Targets: At Risk Population for Osteoporosis;Age: Postmenopausal woman;over >= 50 years of age;Race: Caucasian, Asian;African-American and Hispanic women;History: Women who have a;family or personal history of fractures after age 50;Health Conditions: Women who have;menopause before the age of 45 due to a medical condition or unknown;cause.;Healh Behaviors: Women who have;premature menopause due to anorexia, bulimia, tabacco and alcohol use;or excessive exercise.;Nutrient Deficiencies: Calcium and/or vitamin;D deficiency;Lifestyle: Sedentary, inactive;lifestyle;Medical Treatements: Steroid;(corticosteroids), radiation and/or chemotherapy treatments;Source;NIH 2010, Chart: Meyer 2010;________________Case Questions;1. Using reliable primary resources do research and determine who the;best community partners, and the most effective interventions for;prevention promotion for high risk osteoporosis residents in Anywhere;USA. Your own hospital is one community partner, and it radiology services;(bone density machines) are a resource. What other and resources;within the community would be appropriate?;2. Create a health promotion marketing plan for early bone density;screening targeted throughout the Anywhere, USA communities using the 4-Ps.;Your marketing plan also needs a mission statement, a statement of purpose;objectives and timelines of how you will implement the program.
