Contribute to research if you work in FLS


30 Sep 2020

Do you work in a Fracture Liaison Service? You can have your say in the development of a new consultation support tool by completing a survey.

The tool aims to support patient decision-making by:

  • better describing a patient’s personal fracture risk;
  • explaining how this risk would improve with treatment;
  • and explaining the possible harms.

We are supporting a team at Keele University who are developing and designing the Improving uptake of Fracture Prevention Treatments (iFraP) intervention – which includes the development of this consultation support tool for use in Fracture Liaison Service (FLS) appointments.

Throughout the study, stakeholders have been invited to provide a variety of professional and patient views of the iFraP tool and training development and design. Now, they're looking for healthcare professionals working in FLS to help provide feedback with a survey.

You can help to improve communication in consultations about osteoporosis and fracture prevention by taking the survey today.
