FRACTURE LIAISON SERVICES
Fracture Liaison Services, commonly known as FLS, are coordinator-based, multidisciplinary model of care for secondary fracture prevention. They are implemented by health care systems, both public and private, to close the care gap for patients with fragility fractures, 80% of whom are never screened or treated for osteoporosis. FLS ensures that all patients with fragility fractures are identified to receive fracture risk assessment and treatment, to prevent any further fractures.
Capture the Fracture®, a global flagship programme of IOF since 2012, involves more than 833 FLS across 53 countries.
IOF’s organizational alliances within the musculoskeletal field and across the spectrum of related diseases help to strengthen the osteoporosis movement. By combining our respective expertise and strengths we amplify our call for change on behalf of osteoporosis patients worldwide.
“By working together, all stakeholders and concerned advocates can more effectively drive action in response to the worldwide fragility fracture crisis.”
“IOF unites the world’s largest community of patient and medical societies with a common vision of a world without fragility fractures.”
“I am happy to be part of the IOF movement. IOF's interest in the Asia Pacific has helped boost osteoporosis related activities in the region.”
