Osteoporosis Canada recognizes 25 Canadian hospitals offering Fracture Liaison Services (FLS) by launching an FLS Registry
Fracture Liaison Service (FLS) is recognized as the most effective program to prevent repeat fractures due to osteoporosis. In an FLS, a coordinator screens fracture patients for osteoporosis, and follows them to ensure appropriate investigation and treatment are received to prevent the next fracture.
Osteoporosis Canada’s FLS Registry was launched to profile hospitals across Canada that have implemented effective FLSs. Osteoporosis Canada is delighted at this time to congratulate FLSs from British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia for meeting the Essential Elements of Fracture Liaison Services.
