First National Forum on Secondary Fracture Prevention 

On 20th November 2015, representatives from 22 organisations gathered in Sydney to attend the inaugural National Forum on Secondary Fracture Prevention. This meeting was a direct result of a position Paper Published by the Australia & New Zealand Bone and Mineral Society (ANZBMS) and endorsed by a large number of organisations and key stakeholders. The Paper drew attention to the appalling lack of effective osteoporosis care in Australia, and the shocking fact that 80% of patients who suffer a fragility fracture receive no treatment to prevent further fractures.

Strategic Plan Document 

These policies and programs will involve a shift from current common practice, which is focused principally on acute fracture repair, to engagement with a multi-disciplinary team in a dedicated secondary fracture prevention program. A multidisciplinary approach is required to prevent the falls that precipitate many fragility fractures, identify sentinel fractures early and with high probability, and implement the most appropriate interventions to prevent subsequent fractures.
