The use of androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer has greatly increased in the last 15 years. Adjuvant aromatase inhibitor (AI) therapy is a common treatment in postmenopausal women with hormone receptor positive breast cancer. Bone fractures are of particular concern in these patents, given their association with increased mortality in prostate cancer and breast cancer patients. 
By the end of Oncology Patients at High Risk of Bone Fracture, you will be able to:
• Apply screening criteria to a patient receiving AI therapy or androgen deprivation therapy
• Describe the criteria for initiation of pharmacotherapy in a patient receiving AI therapy or androgen deprivation therapy and apply them to a patient case
Identify present pharmacotherapeutic treatments for management of a patient receiving • AI therapy or androgen deprivation therapy, and describe their mechanisms of action and place in therapy
• Describe the challenges associated with treating patients receiving AI or androgen deprivation therapies, focus specifically on the risks (e.g., adverse drug reactions, drug interactions, et cetera) of the agents and apply the information in optimizing patient care in a patient case
