WELCOME TO FRAGILITY FRACTURE NETWORK HKSAR

We are an autonomous arm of the Global Fragility Fracture Network. Fragility Fracture Network Hong Kong SAR (FFN HKSAR) brings together like-minded physicians, nurses and other allied health professionals who are focused in improving the multidisciplinary treatment and secondary prevention of fragility fractures in Hong Kong.

 

It is not a new society, nor it is seeking to replace any existing organizations or activities.  Fragility Fracture Network Hong Kong SAR is a “network” of activists whose goal is to collate and share best practice across all stakeholders so that we can improve the care of patients with fragility fractures in Hong Kong.

A world where anybody who sustains a fragility fracture achieves the optimal recovery of independent function and quality of life, with no further fractures.

Vision and Mission of Fragility Fracture Network Hong Kong SAR

Although we are one with the dream of preventing all fragility fractures from happening in Hong Kong, we also recognize that this is unrealistic.  Our story starts when a patient presents with a fragility fracture.

OUR VISION

A world where anybody who sustains a fragility fracture achieves the optimal recovery of independent function and quality of life, with no further fractures.

OUR MISSION

To optimize the multidisciplinary management of the patient with a fragility fracture, including secondary prevention in Hong Kong.
