Vertebral Fragility Fractures

Vision

Global best practice towards the identification, assessment and treatment of vertebral fracture fractures.

Aims

Multidisciplinary team working to develop best practice for patients presenting across the domains of VFF care:

Activities

  • Assemble a multi-disciplinary international Special Interest Group, within the framework of the Fragility Fracture Network, to take a holistic approach to all aspects of diagnosis, management, rehabilitation and prevention for vertebral fragility fracture.
  • Oversee the development of an evidence-based model of care that would follow the clinical pathway/patient journey for all men and women with osteoporotic vertebral fragility fracture.
  • Disseminate the information to our professional colleagues, patients, policy makers and the wider community through a coordinated strategy including webinars.
