Why Join Own the Bone?
: Over 2 million fragility fractures will occur this year, yet approximately 80% of these patients will not receive the recommended osteoporosis care following their fracture. A fragility fracture is key predictor of future fractures; Patients who have a fragility fracture are at an 86% higher risk of a second fracture.
: Help close the Osteoporosis Treatment Gap with a Fracture Liaison Service (FLS). The American Orthopaedic Association developed Own the Bone as a quality improvement program to address the osteoporosis treatment gap and prevent subsequent fragility fractures.
