ABOUT

Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy

The Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy (OOS) is a population-based initiative to improve quality of care for people living with 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 work of stakeholders that include: the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC), Osteoporosis Canada, Ontario College of Family Physicians, McMaster University, Women’s College Hospital, GERAS Centre for Aging Research 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
