Bone Care 2020

In December 2012 Osteoporosis New Zealand published BoneCare 2020 which made the case for a systematic approach to hip fracture care and prevention to be implemented nationally. Specifically, BoneCare 2020 called for implementation of a National Hip Fracture Registry to assess adherence with professional standards of acute hip fracture care and establishment of Fracture Liaison Services (FLS) in all District Health Boards (DHBs) to ensure fragility fracture sufferers always receive the secondary preventive care they need. Osteoporosis New Zealand is delighted that since publication of BoneCare 2020, the Ministry of Health has set an expectation for all DHBs to implement an FLS by 30 June 2014 and plans to develop a National Hip Fracture Registry are well underway
