WELCOME TO THE BEST PRACTICE FRAMEWORK (BPF) QUESTIONNAIRE!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

1. Complete the BPF Questionnaire

2. Evaluation by the Capture the Fracture® (CTF) Steering Committee

3. Receive rating on Map of Best Practice and certificate of achievement

1. Complete the BPF questionnaire in one of the many available languages. Completion of this form should take approximately 20 to 60 minutes depending on the level of data that is readily accessible to the Post Fracture Care (PFC) Coordination Program/FLS. Applying is free of charge.

2. Once submitted, your PFC coordination program/FLS will be included on our Map of Best Practice. The CTF Steering Committee will then review your application and present you with a final rating based on five administrative and clinical quality domains - hip fractures, other in-patient fractures, outpatient fractures, vertebral fractures, and organisational characteristics. Our team will contact you should we need any additional information or clarification from your part.

3. Your PFC coordination program/FLS will be shown on the Map of Best Practice with a rating – Blue, Bronze, Silver, or Gold – and you will receive a certificate of achievement signed by IOF and the IOF CTF Logo which you can use in your promotional material.
