New review sets international standards for best practice in fracture liaison services
Date:4/22/2013

ul>

  • Illustrate global best practice for FLS;
  • Set benchmarks to which clinics and hospitals can aspire;
  • Provide essential resources and documentation;
  • Give international recognition to FLS programmes around the world;
  • Establish mentoring and grant programmes to assist development of FLS at the local level.

    Clinics and hospitals worldwide can participate by submitting information about their FLS or coordinator- based programmes for inclusion on http://www.capturethefracture.org. The portal offers a visual map that shows the address and location of clinics around the world offering FLS, along with a summary of their achievements in secondary fracture prevention; the map can be viewed at: http://www.capture-the-fracture.org/map-of-best-practice.

    Professor Kristina Akesson, first author of the review and Chair of the Capture the Fracture initiative, stated, "Due to the increase in the proportion of seniors worldwide, we're expecting a dramatic increase in the health-economic costs associated with osteoporotic fractures in the coming years. The implementation of effective FLS systems are the best way for the health care community to identify and manage people at high risk of secondary fractures. Such systems will play a critical role in reducing the enormous human and health-economic costs of fractures."
