Fragility Fractures Require Automatic Patient Follow-up

Two words - Anabolic Clinic (sm).

And these folks are wrong, BTW.
Fragility fractures need to be linked automatically with provision of care that would assess patients for future risk for fracture and prevent new fractures, according to the conclusions of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) Task Force on Secondary Fracture Prevention.

John A. Eisman, MBBS, PhD, professor of medicine at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, and colleagues presented their report in an article published online July 26 and in the September print issue of the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.

"Despite the major health care impact worldwide, currently there are few systems in place to identify and 'capture' individuals after a fragility fracture to ensure appropriate assessment and treatment (according to national guidelines) to reduce future fracture risk and adverse health outcomes," Dr. Eisman and colleagues write.

The task force, which included representatives from 36 countries, reviewed evidence regarding interventional approaches, including fracture liaison services (FLS), after fracture. "The purpose of this report is to provide a logical background, medical and ethical rationale, and toolkit for reducing secondary fracture incidence, particularly hip fractures, and health care costs," the authors write.

"Fractures Beget Fractures" "Fractures beget fractures and lead to untold suffering. Our task force looked at ways to break this vicious cycle," report cochair Ethel S. Siris, MD, from the Department of Medicine, Columbia University, New York City, noted in an ASBMR news release. "We learned what works and what doesn't. The research is clear: Fracture liaison services are saving suffering, and they are saving money," she stated.
Fragility fractures should be PREVENTED.
