Endocrine Society Part of Coalition That Developed New Osteoporosis, Fracture Treatment Guidelines

The Secondary Fracture Prevention: Consensus Recommendations from a Multistakeholder Coalition was published online in the peer-reviewed Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.

These recommendations outline the best course of clinical care for women and men, ages 65 years or older, with a hip or vertebral fracture, and emphasize that fracture patients should be managed in a multi-disciplinary clinical system to ensure appropriate evaluation and treatment for osteoporosis and risk of future fractures.
