UK National Survey of Osteoporosis Care for Patients with Fragility Fracture

The aim of this survey is to assess the quality and logistics of provision of care for patients with osteoporosis suffering fragility fractures. We feel our findings will provide insight into what measures are currently in place in the UK in managing such challenging patients.
