Secondary Fracture Prevention: An International Perspective presents practitioners and academic clinicians with a better understanding of secondary fracture prevention and models of care from a variety of settings and countries. This must-have guide provides practitioners and academic clinicians with essential information about this broad clinical and research topic that extends across the globe. Preventing secondary fractures starts with assessing what works and what does not work, reviewing major society guidelines, and what workup and management is necessary. This book reviews these topics and provides the rationale for pursuing a workup to prevent fractures in this patient population.
