There is no “one size fits all” model for implementing secondary fracture prevention with a fracture liaison service (FLS). Learn more about how three Own the Bone program coordinators have found success running an FLS within their different care settings, including an urban academic medical center, a community-based regional hospital, and an integrated health system. Hear about each of their program’s initiation, incremental growth over the years, what they are doing today, and future plans.
