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.
