The BEST Exercise Program for Osteoporosis Prevention Course Goals: This course is designed to give the student comprehensive overview of factors related to bone health with a specific emphasis on exercise for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. The course is based on the University of Arizona Bone Estrogen Strength Training (BEST) study that demonstrated that weightbearing and resistance exercise significantly improved bone mineral density at skeletal sites at risk for fracture in postmenopausal women. Student Objectives: At the end of this course the student will be able to: 1. Define osteoporosis 2. Identify the most common osteoporosis-related fracture sites 3. Recognize the prevalence of osteoporosis in the United States 4. Identify how bone tissue changes throughout the life cycle 5. Identify the one remolding cycle 6. Identify how medical therapy, nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle practices can help prevent and treat osteoporosis 7. Identify the primary and secondary risk factors for osteoporosis 8. Identify clinical definitions of osteopenia and osteoporosis 9. List methods for osteoporosis screening 10. Identify dual energy x-ray absorptiometry and ultrasonometry as devices for assessing bone mass, bone strength, and fracture risk 11. Identify clinical indications for bone densitometry 12. Identify the importance of physical activity for bone growth and maintenance of bone mass and density 13. Identify the goals of an exercise program for osteoporosis prevention 14. Identify the optimal mechanical stimuli for bone growth and mineralization and maintenance of bone mineral mass and density 15. Identify findings from observational studies of bone mineral density and interpret their meaning for prescription for osteoporosis prevention 16. Identify general findings from exercise training studies an interpret their meaning for exercise prescription for osteoporosis prevention 17. List exercise training principles and explain their application to program design for osteoporosis prevention. 18. Identify exercises to be avoided in older persons with osteoporosis and persons with low bone mineral density. 19. Identify useful exercises for stimulating increases in bone mineral density 20. Outline the training principles important for optimal bone health 21. Differentiate between the exercise protocols used in moderate training and heavy training 22. Identify the six BEST strengthening exercises for osteoporosis prevention 23. Identify stretching, abdominal strengthening, postural exercises, and cardio-weightbearing activities for optimal bone health and osteoporosis prevention. 24. Outline the strategies used to maintain high exercise adherence. 25. Identify examples of the social cognitive constructs underlying the BEST intervention program. 26. Identify the key factors to create a sustainable osteoporosis prevention program. 27. Identify the function of nutrients and food components related to bone health throughout the life cycle 28. Identify Dietary References Intakes for Adequate Intakes and Tolerable Upper Intake Levels for nutrients related to bone health. 29. Identify guidelines for calcium and vitamin D supplements 30. Identify nutrient and food components that positively and negatively influence bone health. 31. Identify the associated risk for falling with pharmacological agents 32. Identify 5 classes of medications currently approved for use in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis 33. Identify the role of each of the 5 classes of medications used in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis 34. Identify compliance issues in taking medication prescribed to people with osteoporosis.
