Patients who are engaged in their own care are more likely to reduce the risk of future fractures

People over the age of 50 who have suffered a fracture because of a slip or trip play a central role in making sure they get proper care to prevent a future fracture, a new study has found.
 The findings are important because previous efforts to improve care for bone health after one of these fractures have had limited success.
