Download PDF

Plans for implementation of Fracture Liaison Services (FLS) are ongoing in several jurisdictions across Canada. To support ongoing implementation of FLS, Osteoporosis Canada has developed Quality Standards for FLS in Canada. The CRA has endorsed these Quality Standards, along with the Canadian Orthopedic Association, the Canadian Orthopedic Nurses Association, and Bone and Joint Canada. The list of endorsing organizations will be updated as additional endorsements are received.

The Quality Standards provide a concise set of statements which describe the most important functions of an FLS and which provide very clear guidance for healthcare professionals and administrators on what a world-class FLS will actually deliver. The Quality Standards will help ensure that any FLS can be set up for success at the time of implementation. These Standards are in compliance with the 2010 Osteoporosis Canada Clinical Guidelines and the International Osteoporosis Foundation. Capture the Fracture Best Practice Framework for FLS.
