Osteoporosis website launched for healthcare professionals

A new osteoporosis website, BREAKfree from fractures, has been launched to provide healthcare professionals with advice to help patients stay on their osteoporosis treatment.

The site has been developed by a group of leading osteoporosis experts including GPs and nurses.

Available to download on the site is a copy of the BREAKfree from fractures leaflet produced by the expert panel.

The leaflet can be given to patients who have been prescribed treatment for osteoporosis to support them in the day-to-day management of their condition and motivate them to look after their bones.
