FRAX: Identifying People at High Risk of Fractures

FRAX Report: identifying people at high risk of fractureThis 16-page report, issued on World Osteoporosis Day 2009, aims to bring understanding of FRAX® to health professionals, policy makers, and interested laypersons.

The report is authored by Dr. Eugene McCloskey of the University of Sheffield, a key developer of the calculation tool.

As a freely accessible online clinical tool, FRAX® helps clinicians make informed treatment decisions, based on fracture risk rather than BMD values alone.

The tool is available at http://www.shef.ac.uk/FRAX/
