Figure 3

Change in bone mineral density testing depending of risk factor status during the 1 st year of the study. The generalized estimating equations approach was used to model differences in appropriate utilization of bone mineral density testing pre and post 1st educational intervention. Values are expressed as adjusted and unadjusted odds ratios (OR) and corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CI) are reported. Generalized estimating equations method was used to take into account the clustered nature of the data (patients within physicians). All risk factors in figure 3 were included in the adjusted analysis along with the two way interaction terms with phase. The fit of the models was < 0.001.
