A brand new podcast series - created specifically for healthcare professionals in bone health – is now live. In the unique “Fragility Fractures in Focus” series, a number of renowned experts in bone health will explore some of the most pressing issues impacting clinical practice today - how can the prevention of secondary fractures improve patients’ lives? How can we reduce the burden of fractures on healthcare systems? What role can FLSs play?

The second episode in this exciting series has just been launched to coincide with the start of the World Congress on Osteoporosis (WCO) of the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and the European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis (ESCEO), in Barcelona (May 4-7). Hosted by Cesar Libanati, UCB’s Head of Medical Affairs, Bone, this episode (fittingly titled Breaking the Fracture Cycle) features special guest Dr Maria Talla, consultant physician in endocrinology and mineral metabolism at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow, Scotland, UK. Dr Talla, is clinical lead of the FLS in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, which is fast becoming an example of best practice. She’s, therefore, perfectly placed to offer unique insights into the impact of FLSs on patient care and secondary fracture prevention.

‘Prevention’ is a key component of the P4 Health Spectrum (along with predictive, personalized, and participatory) which looks to shift focus away from disease to the promotion of a state of wellness, defined as ‘optimal health’. Every episode in the podcast series will be based on the spectrum, an increasingly recognized cornerstone of proactive modern medicine.

“The Fragility Fractures in Focus podcast series highlights UCB’s continued commitment to creating value for patients and the scientific community”, explains Nico Reynders, Head of Bone Mission. “UCB is proud to showcase its continuous work at WCO-IOF-ESCEO, which aims to move the needle on all aspects of bone health and reduce the risk of fragility fractures.”
