CTF-10th anniversary FLS spotlight social media campaign

This year, to celebrate Capture the Fracture®’s (CTF) 10th anniversary, we look forward to highlighting the extraordinary work of Fracture Liaison Services (FLS) which are part of the CTF network in all regions of the world. 

A social media campaign, which kicked off on September 1st, will feature portraits submitted by 35 of the more than 765 FLSs in the CTF network. 

The campaign will reflect the tremendous team spirit that is behind the successful operation of all FLS services. Working together, these multidisciplinary teams provide vital post-fracture care for thousands upon thousands of patients in all regions of the world. Their efforts improve patient outcomes and save healthcare costs by preventing recurring fractures in the most high-risk patients.

Dr Philippe Halbout, CEO of the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) stated:

“We extend our great thanks to the FLS teams from 20 countries which have submitted their photos for this special celebratory campaign. Above all, we hope the campaign, although spotlighting only a small portion of the vast CTF Network, succeeds in demonstrating the incredible work of all FLSs which work tirelessly to improve post-fracture care for patients worldwide. Congratulations to all!”
