About

The effects of osteoporosis (OP) education on OP patients and the normal population studied and described in numerous studies. But the effects of OP education on Parkinsonian patients have not been sufficiently elucidated. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of OP education on the OP knowledge level and daily life in Parkinsonian patients. Our hypothesis is; to Parkinsonian patients; there is a statistically significant difference in terms of OP knowledge level and daily life between giving only informative leaflets about OP and also providing structured OP education. 54 participants aged 50 and older with Parkinson's Disease were randomized to the experimental and control groups. While only leaflets were given to the control group, structured OP education was also given to the experimental group. Patients were evaluated with the same structured face-to-face interviews at the entrance and 12 weeks later.

Full description

The OP education was performed in groups of 4-5 people by a single physician in the form of verbal expression via slide, with a duration of 20 minutes and in the form of a single session. Our leaflets contained the same information as the OP education program. Face-to-face interviews include; Revised 2011 Osteoporosis Knowledge Test (rOKT) (0-32 points) for OP knowledge levels; National Osteoporosis Foundation daily calcium intake scale [NOF, (mg)], Physical Activity Scale For The Elderly (PASE, 0-763 points), smoking and alcohol use status (Yes/No) and quantities (cigarette pack/per week, alcohol unit/per week), frequency of falls (times/last 1 month) were questioned for effects on daily life.
