Generic Job Descriptions

Clinical Pathway Mapping Tools

FFN is in the process of developing a suite of electronic clinical pathway mapping tools.

In 2019, the FLS Focus Group of the Asia Pacific Bone Academy (APBA) published a second edition of the FLS Toolbox for Asia Pacific. This includes a suite of resources to enable multidisciplinary teams to visualise the current pathways of care. FFN has been granted permission to link to these resources and thanks the APBA FLS Focus Group and Amgen Asia for their support.

Related Resources

There are extensive links in the FFN Clinical Toolkit to the second edition of the textbook on orthogeriatrics and the fragility fracture nursing textbook, which were both published as open access thanks to unconditional support by UCB.

The Policy Toolkit complements and expands upon the Guide to formation of national Fragility Fracture Networks. A national FFN will catalyse the creation of the multidisciplinary national alliances referred to in the Global Call to Action and FFN Clinical and Policy Toolkits.
