The Best Science (BS) Medicine Podcast is a weekly presentation where practitioners can get evidence-based drug therapy content that is practical, entertaining and promotes healthy scepticism. In essence, we are the Medication Mythbusters. We present information that is useful and relevant to physicians, pharmacists, nurses, physician assistants and other health professionals, and that can easily be incorporated into day-to-day practice. The podcast is presented by Dr. James McCormack, Professor in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia and Dr Michael Allan, Associate Professor in the Department of Family Practice at the University of Alberta.

Episode 473: All the numbers for bisphosphonates and denosumab in osteoporosis
In episode 473, Mike and James invite Samantha Moe yet again to talk about a recent Tools for Practice that looked at treatments for osteoporosis. Sam helps us put all the evidence into perspective for bisphosphonates and denosumab when it comes to fractures. We discuss the numbers and help explain why secondary prevention in osteoporosis is not really secondary prevention.
