Objective: To assess the effect of carrying out health education for middle-aged and senile osteoporosis (OP) patients in community. Method: A total of 193 middle-aged and senile cases over 50 years old in community were selected and divided into 3 groups based on convenient sampling. Patients of education group were offered information, a course of lectures and face-to-face guidance. Patients of data group were given some data in papers only. The third group cases were just as control. All cases were investigated before and after intervention by filling out “OP related life style and preventative behavior questionnaire" that designed based on related references. Result: It was effective to enhance OP knowledge, belief about health and self-efficiency of cases in the education group and was superior to both data group and control group cases. In terms of daily sunlight time, milk drinking and motor behavior improvement, cases of education group were superior to the other two groups cases. But there was no obvious difference among the three groups.Conclusion: For middle-aged and senile OP cases in community, health education via data could not be only way of health education. And face-to-face guidance would be more suitable for them.And the promotion of OP related knowledge for these cases is in a long run, which needs to unfold community care widely and cooperation of versatility so as to achieve the aim.
