Register now for IOF’s Free Capture the Fracture webinar on Tuesday 16th August 2016.
Entitled: Learn how to implement a Fracture Liaison Service to improve patient care
Fragility fractures have an enormous socioeconomic impact globally and yet most patients continue to be denied access to effective secondary fracture prevention interventions after suffering a fragility fracture. Fracture Liaison Services (FLS) have been recommended as the optimal method for closing this gap in care. However, to be effective, an FLS requires optimal identification, assessment, initiation and monitoring of therapy. The IOF Best Practice Recognition programme measures the quality of services within this framework to ensure an FLS delivers to a standard to close this care gap.
This webinar is presented by Prof. Kristina Åkesson, co-chair of the Capture the Fracture® Steering Committee and chair of the IOF Fracture Working Group with extensive expertise on how to implement an FLS in a health-care setting.
