Introducing Osteoporosis Canada’s Consultation Service for New FLSs!

Are you in the process of setting up a new FLS at your hospital?

Osteoporosis Canada (OC) is pleased to offer a free consultation to Canadian FLSs prior to implementation!

This program may help you:

  • Determine if your FLS will be as clinically effective and cost effective as possible
  • Meet the 8 Essential Elements to be considered for listing in the Osteoporosis Canada FLS Registry
  • Improve your existing FLS to meet the 8 Essential Elements, if  interested in applying to the Canadian FLS Registry
  • Where possible, Osteoporosis Canada will help facilitate mentorships and/or other training opportunities with Canadian FLSs similar to your own model

Please note, this is not an osteoporosis consultation service. Only FLSs striving to meet the 8 Essential Elements are eligible for this free service.

Interested? Get in touch!

“OC’s FLS Essential Elements and Quality Standards are indispensable guides when designing a new FLS model.  There is no need to re-invent the wheel:  just use one of the many templates in the OC FLS Toolkit (link) to help draft your new FLS documents.  OC was able to link us with another FLS very similar to our own model and we elected to send our brand new FLS coordinator to train with them.  Finally, Dr. Diane Theriault was of enormous assistance whenever we encountered a problem, which is to be expected in the early stages of implementation.  I would recommend the new OC FLS consultation service to any group who is planning to implement an FLS.”Dr. Sonia Singh, FLS Medical Lead for Peace Arch FLS, White Rock BC
