Osteoporosis Strategy for Long Term Care

About the Strategy

Osteoporosis Strategy for Long-Term Care gives healthcare professionals, seniors, and their families access to quality information and resources regarding osteoporosis and fracture prevention.

Why is the FRS important?

  • The FRS is the first tool of its kind developed specifically for the LTC population. It makes assessment for fractures easy
  • Improved quality of life for residents – fractures can have life-changing and debilitating consequences.
  • Improved care to reduce pain, disability, and transfers to hospital.

How can I access the FRS?
The FRS is embedded in MDS 2.0 software as provided by PointClickCare or the LTCF. Ask your software vendor about your home’s FRS implementation status.
