Task force urges use of fracture liaison services to reduce osteoporosis fractures
from Orthopedics Today
An international task force has called on healthcare providers to aggressively identify and provide care for patients who have sustained their first osteoporosis-related fracture to prevent subsequent fractures, according to a report published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research. The task force recommended a solution that included fracture liaison services — a system of patient care coordination shown to significantly improve follow-up assessment and treatment following an initial fracture, reducing the likelihood of further fractures.
