At minimum ask

Have you had a fracture after the age of 40 resulting from minimal trauma (e.g., standing height or less)? (Hover to expand box)

REMEMBER

  • Presence of vertebral or hip fracture automatically high risk, presence of wrist only moderate risk, presence of wrist + vertebral or hip high risk
  • High risk means there is 20% chance they will have another fracture within the next 10 years, and may affect the exercises you choose and the activities you recommend modifying

Use the FRAX, CAROC, or Fracture Risk Scale in Long-term Care or Home Care to obtain a more detailed review of fracture risk factors
