The North American region includes two countries: Canada and United States. There is an increasing interest for FFN activities in both North American countries. Discussions with those interested in post fracture care are ongoing with plans to sponsor four webinars on relevant topics in orthogeriatrics in the last quarter of 2022 and the first two quarters of 2023. Discussions also are underway in Canada and US on establishing national FFNs or post fracture care coalitions comprised of several organizations in each country, recognizing that there are many well-established organizations in both countries, none of which focuses on all aspects of post-fracture care and all professions that provide it.
