Fragility Fracture Network: Perioperative SIG
NOTE: In the spring of 2020, the FFN expanded the Anaesthesia SIG to the Perioperative SIG with the aim of enhancing collaboration and learning among the many providers and disciplines involved in the perioperative process especially as it relates to fragility fractures. Ultimately, the goal is to improve the perioperative care of fragility fracture patients globally.
To create an interdisciplinary collaborating group of clinicians, researchers and educators within the Fragility Fracture Network who share an interest in understanding and are committed to improving perioperative care of people with fragility fractures across the globe.
