ABSTRACT:
There is a large amount of elderly people suffering osteoporosis. And also elderly people are more prone to develop osteoporosis; one or more people over 50 will sustain an osteoporosis-related fracture during their lifetime. This disease is a silent thief because it slowly robs the skeleton of its banked resources. Bones eventually become so fragile that they cannot withstand normal mechanical stress. Incidence rate is high in women, especially post-menopausal women. The study is aimed to generate a general awareness about osteoporosis, to generate a generation without osteoporosis and to prevent further complications of osteoporosis. The aim of the study is to assess the knowledge regarding risk factors and preventive measures of osteoporosis among elderly patients in a selected hospital Kidangoor. A descriptive survey design was used in this study. The population of the study includes 30 samples from various outpatient departments of Little Lourdes Mission Hospital, Kidangoor. The tools used for the data collection include structured questionnaire to assess the baseline characteristics and level of knowledge regarding the risk factors and preventive measures of osteoporosis. Therefore null hypothesis was accepted for age, sex, area of living, occupation, and source of information and research hypothesis is rejected, whereas there is significant association between knowledge of elderly patients and education. So for education research hypothesis is accepted and null hypothesis is rejected. The study revealed that 6.6% participants had very good knowledge, 36.6% of participants had good knowledge and 56.6% had average knowledge regarding risk factors and preventive measures of osteoporosis.
