Osteoporosis Nursing Care Plan

Osteoporosis Nursing Care Plan

Osteoporosis is a condition where bones lose density causing them to become weak, brittle and more likely to break or fracture. Bones are a living tissue, just like the rest of the body. They consist of cells, which both build and break down bone, within a surrounding substance known as the extracellular matrix, which is composed of proteins and mineralised components.

The composition of the extracellular matrix determines how strong the bone is, and the higher the concentration of calcium, the greater the strength. Bone reaches a peak of being most dense and strong by around the third decade of life. From this point, bone mass slowly decreases.

The Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred Care Plan.
