FLS Training Program at ISCD 2015

FLS programs coordinate post-fracture care through a FLS coordinator (a nurse practitioner, physician’s assistant, nurse or other health professional) who ensures that individuals who suffer a fracture receive appropriate diagnosis, treatment and support. The program establishes a process and timeline for patient assessment and follow-up care and creates a database of fracture patients which helps to measure and track performance improvement.
