Roh YH, et al. - In this nationwide online survey conducted among 926 older Korean women, researchers assessed factors influencing the willingness of subjects to either undergo or avoid assessment and treatment for osteoporosis. Survey questions addressed 3 domains: clinical and socio-demographic characteristics, questions related to the reasons for undergoing or avoiding osteoporosis assessment or treatment, and knowledge of osteoporosis as estimated using the modified Korean version of Facts on Osteoporosis Quiz.
