Fracture Screening and Prevention Program

The Fracture Screening and Prevention Program (FSPP), developed and operated by Osteoporosis Canada in partnership with the Ontario Orthopaedic Association and the Ontario College of Family Physicians, is one of the secondary fracture prevention initiatives launched in 2007 to screen fragility fractures and facilitate diagnosis and appropriate care. This coordinator-based program provides osteoporosis screening in an orthopaedic fracture clinic setting and in Family Health Teams by identifying and assessing men and women who have had a fragility fracture – a broken bone from an activity that would not normally cause a bone to break, such as a simple slip, trip or fall.

The Fracture Screening and Prevention Program (FSPP) is operating at these sites across Ontario. The FSPP goal is to increase the rate of referral of patients who have sustained a fragility fracture for assessment and treatment of osteoporosis in order to reduce the risk of refractures.
