Research and education

The unique multidisciplinary composition of the membership of the FFN, combined with global reach, creates an unparalleled opportunity to address unanswered questions in the management of fragility fractures. The current focus of FFN research activities are development of a minimum dataset for hip fracture audit, optimal case-finding and management of vertebral fractures and rehabilitation research.

The links below provide information on FFN Special Interest Groups which have been established for the hip fracture minimum dataset and vertebral fracture care. Also, the current status of rehabilitation research is described, in addition to links to our colleagues at the International Society for Fracture Repair.
