Patients sustaining a low-trauma fracture are at greater risk of subsequent fracture, but as a group are poorly managed. We report the development of our ‘First Fracture Project’, in which we attempt to assess all patients over 50 years of age with a low-trauma fracture attending orthopaedic fracture clinics and treat osteopenia and osteoporosis. We found that the First Fracture Project has greatly increased our success in improving delivery of osteoporosis care to appropriate at-risk patients.
