Core Tip Bisphosphonates (BPs) have been proven to be effective, tolerated and relatively safe to a large number of patients. However, they were associated with reports of multiple adverse events. Given the widespread use of these medications, detailed knowledge on occurrence of even rare side effects is imperative. In this study, we assess the knowledge and approach of our physicians regarding BPs-related complications. Eventually, this evaluation will facilitate the elaboration of appropriate training programs to increase their awareness and improve their practice. It will incite pharmaceutical companies to reconsider the instructions they provide to physicians about the complications of treatments they promote.
