A comprehensive secondary fracture prevention strategy

Muhammad Javaid

University of Oxford, Oxford, UK.

With over 500,000 fragility fractures a year and an ageing demographic, tackling the burden of osteoporosis is an urgent national priority. Effective secondary fracture prevention within the NHS could prevent over 20,000 fragility fractures including 9,000 hip fractures within 5 years. Ensuring this care gap is closed requires support from political prioritisation, business case models, getting started and getting improved and sustainable. This presentation will highlight the current models within the NHS, alignment with international standards and future plans to support your centre achieving a sustainable FLS.
