ABOUT

Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy

The Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy (OOS) is a population-based initiative to improve quality of care for osteoporosis in Ontario.

The mandate of the Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy is to reduce morbidity, mortality and costs from osteoporotic fractures using a patient-centred, multi-disciplinary approach that is integrated across healthcare sectors.

OOS represents the vision and coordinated efforts of many groups, including the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC), Osteoporosis Canada, Ontario College of Family Physicians, McMaster University, Women’s College Hospital and St. Michael’s Hospital. Fracture prevention is a priority area for the OOS with a specific objective of reducing the risk of hip and other osteoporotic fractures.

The goal of the Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy is to reduce hip fractures by 20% by 2020
