How to prevent the next fracture

Mitchell, Paul and Åkesson, Kristina LU (2018) In Injury 49(8). p.1424-1429
Abstract

During the last decade, policymakers, learned societies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and some national alliances of all three of these groups have advocated, developed and implemented systematic approaches to fragility fracture care and prevention in a growing number of countries. This chapter reviews the impact of Orthogeriatric Services (OGS) and Fracture Liaison Services (FLS) on delivery of best practice in secondary fracture prevention. An overview of national and international strategies intended to promote widespread implementation of these service models is also provided.
