SOSFA Submission to the 2021 ONZ FLS Standards Consultation
In June 2021 the SOS Fracture Alliance was invited by Osteoporosis New Zealand to provide a submission on their consultation for proposed Clinical Standards for Fracture Liaison Services (FLS) in NZ.
The Alliance is aware not only of the importance of high quality FLSs as the current 'gold standard' for fracture prevention, but also of the interconnectedness of the Australian and New Zealand health systems.
As such the Alliance was pleased to provide input into this ONZ consultation. We believe that establishing FLS Clinical Standards in NZ will strengthen the case for establishing similar standards in Australia, where none currently exist.
In principle the Alliance supported the proposed standards, but recommended some modifications and additions be made to the current drafted KPIs within the Standards.
