To implement the Global Call to Action where you work, we encourage you to read the
FFN Clinical and Policy Toolkits.
The Global Call to Action on Fragility Fractures was published in 2018.
If you would like to turn the Call to Action into Actual Action in your country, a first step is to read the FFN Clinical Toolkit (Pillars 1-3) and the FFN Policy Toolkit (Pillar 4).
The Clinical Toolkit was published in 2020.
The purpose of the Clinical Toolkit is to support colleagues throughout the world to deliver the three clinical pillars of the Global Call to Action on Fragility Fractures.
The Policy Toolkit was published in 2020.
The purpose of the Policy Toolkit is to support colleagues to advocate for the policy changes that are needed to bring about widespread uptake of best clinical practice.
FFN has developed a number of books that identify evidence based clinical practice that can be used by clinicians and healthcare organizations to improve their clinical pathways and care for fragility fracture patients.
A text book that provides information on Orthogeriatrics is available at no cost.
A text book on the nutritional management of patients with fragility fracture is available at no cost.
A text book on the nursing management of fragility fracture patients is available at no cost.
Implementation of evidence-based care occurs at a national level and additional resources are available to help support activities.
Fracture Liaison Services: FFN has developed a generic business case template to support implementation of Fracture Liaison Services
which can be downloaded from here.
Developed as a collaboration by the Asia Pacific Fragility Fracture Alliance Hip Fracture Registry Working Group and the Fragility Fracture Network Hip Fracture Audit Special Interest Group, the Hip Fracture Registry Toolbox is a practical and informative resource that explains the need, and how to best advocate for, the establishment of a national hip fracture registry.
