Racial differences and disparities in osteoporosis-related bone health: results from the PAADRN randomized controlled trial.
The researchers examined whether providing dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) test results directly to patients might reduce or eliminate racial differences in osteoporosis-related health care. They found that black women were still less likely to know their actual DXA result and less likely to be on guideline-concordant therapy, but black women had greater patient activation.
