NOF launched the Fracture Liaison Service (FLS) Model of Care Training and Certificate of Completion in New Orleans, April 23-26, 2014 at our Interdisciplinary Symposium on Osteoporosis (ISO). The FLS Training and Certificate of Completion explores the most important economic and health system challenges to the widespread implementation of the FLS model of care, covering topics such as the impact of healthcare reform; challenges and barriers in clinical care; and strategies for organizing, staffing and structuring a successful FLS program.

FLS Training is specifically developed to provide participants with information about the benefits of a FLS program and provides information and tools about how to build and sustain the FLS program. The FLS Training emphasizes the importance of appropriate patient assessment, treatment initiation, medical follow-up and care coordination for the post-fracture patient.

FLS Advanced Course Certificate of Completion
NOF launched the Fracture Liaison Service (FLS) Advanced Course Model of Care Training and Certificate of Completion in New Orleans, May 16, 2018 at our Interdisciplinary Symposium on Osteoporosis (ISO).
