The Fragility Fracture Network (FFN) is a global organisation, which was founded in order to create a multidisciplinary network of experts for improving treatment
and secondary prevention of fragility fractures. During FFN’s first decade, from 2010 to 2019, the organisation grew from a small group of healthcare professionals deeply committed to improving outcomes for people who sustain painful, debilitating and, all too often, life-threatening injuries, into a worldwide, multidisciplinary movement.
In 2016, FFN began a collaboration with colleagues from the European Geriatric Medicine Society, European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, International Collaboration of Orthopaedic Nursing, International Geriatric Fracture Society and International Osteoporosis Foundation. In 2018, this resulted in publication of the Global Call to Action on Fragility Fractures (CtA).1 The CtA has attracted widespread endorsement from organisations whose members are involved on a day-to-day basis in managing people who sustain fragility fractures, and epitomises the multi-professional, multidisciplinary, collaborative ethos of the FFN.
