Fracture Liaison Service (FLS)

FLS is a specific system-based model of care for secondary fracture prevention where a dedicated coordinator:

  • Identification:

    systematically and proactively identifies patients aged 50 years and older presenting to a hospital with a new fragility fracture and/or with a newly reported vertebral fracture;

  • Investigation:

    organizes appropriate investigations to determine the patient’s fracture risk;

  • Initiation:

    facilitates the initiation of appropriate osteoporosis medications.

  • Close The Gap
