Today, Osteoporosis New Zealand (ONZ) published Guidance on the Diagnosis and Management of Osteoporosis in New Zealand. This user-friendly and highly practical tool provides support to clinicians throughout the health system to deliver evidence-based practice for their patients who are at high risk of sustaining fragility fractures.
Christine Gill, Executive Director of ONZ said “The launch of this guidance today is a major milestone in improving bone health of the nation. ONZ was delighted at the level of endorsement for the guidance, with fourteen organisations giving their support. We now look forward to this guidance being used so that optimal care is delivered to the patients and our vision of better bones and fewer fractures can become a reality for all New Zealanders.”
