Fact sheets, booklets and information films

We have lots of fact sheets and booklets available to download and print, covering everything from general bone health, to diagnosing osteoporosis and fragility fractures, to osteoporosis drug treatments and living with spinal fractures.

We also have a number of information films, which have been developed together with people who have experience of osteoporosis and fractures, and who understand what you might be going through – as well as our very popular series of exercise films.

You can find links to all of our downloadable fact sheets and booklets, and our information films, on this page.

There's also information for support group or event organisers who want to order publications, and for health professionals who want resources to share with patients.
