IOF has developed a Mentorship program to enable the implementation of Post-Fracture Care (PFC) coordination programs, such as Fracture Liaison Services worldwide.
To achieve this goal, IOF wants to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and skills by connecting experienced PFC program champions with any institutions willing to establish a new PFC program.
The mentorship program offers three types of mentorship:
Onsite training day
This activity allows an PFC candidate (mentee) to benefit from a “one-day visit” at the PFC champion’s institution (mentor). Material and certificate will be provided. IOF will cover the travel cost for the PFC candidate. A limited number of on-site training days will be available each year. If you want to establish/improve your PFC, please fill in the application form and send it to Anastasia Soulié at firstname.lastname@example.org
CTF PFC Workshop
This workshop aims to teach the basic steps on PFC implementation to a group of 15-20 PFC candidates (mentees) within the same country. In close collaboration with a national society, the CTF PFC workshop will be customized to the health system of the country by including local experts within the speaker panel. Course materials and certificates of attendance will be provided to the mentees. If you are a National Society and want to organize a CTF PFC workshop, please contact Anastasia Soulié at email@example.com
Getting to gold program
This initiative aims to provide effective long-term support for PFC programs that were established with the help of the CTF Mentorship Program. It will help to drive an increase in the number and quality of PFC programs, and ensure that they are sustainable in the long term. The ‘Train the Trainer’ component of this program provides intensive, targeted training and certification to selected national experts, who then form a cadre of mentors to support local PFC development.
