Best Practice Framework
The Best Practice Framework (BPF) serves as the measurement tool for IOF to award ‘Capture the Fracture Best Practice Recognition’ in celebration of successful FLS worldwide. Applicants will feature on the CTF’s interactive map and will be awarded the Capture the Fracture Best Practice Recognition logo.
The BPF has been developed by a steering committee chaired by Professor Serge Ferrari (Switzerland) and Professor Kassim Javaid (UK), and shaped by input from global leaders of established Fracture Liaison Services.
The objectives of the BPF are to:
Empower Change for clinical champions and health care administrators to rationally evaluate provision of secondary fracture prevention in their health care system in the context of globally-endorsed standards
Provide Recognition to leaders of established FLS for their dedication to excellence.
Guidance for those health care systems that are yet to establish an FLS
Download the Best Practice Framework and learn about the 13 globally-endorsed standards
How it works

The CTF Steering Committee will review your application and come back to you with a final summary based on five criteria - hip fracture patients, other in-patient fractures, outpatient fractures, vertebral fractures and organisational characteristics.

The CTF Steering Committee will grade the service from both administrative and clinical perspectives which is determined based on five quality domains – hip, vertebral, inpatient, outpatient and organisational characteristics.
