Have your say: ‘Clinical Guidance for the Effective Identification of Vertebral Fractures’
21 Jul 2017
Vertebral fractures are the most common osteoporotic fracture yet 50-70% of these are currently undiagnosed.
To tackle this problem, the National Osteoporosis Society has worked with an expert steering group to produce ‘Clinical Guidance for the Effective Identification of Vertebral Fractures’.
This guideline aims to help improve understanding about vertebral fractures amongst Health Professionals and support services to improve their identification and how they are described in reports, leading to better care for people affected.
