Funding to prevent osteoporotic fractures

A team of researchers, including BCCOP members Dr. Sonia Singh, Dr. Raheem B. Kherani, Larry Funnell and Irmgard Matthes, are working on spreading the idea of Fracture Liaison Services (FLS) across BC. FLS is a cost-effective evidence-based model that has been adopted worldwide. FLS involves a dedicated coordinator who works with the patient during the orthopedic care for a fracture and links them to their family doctor to follow up on their recovery and prevention. At this time, only three hospitals in the province have implemented FLS.
