Fragility Fracture Registry


Welcome to

Australian Fragility Fracture Foundation

The Australian Fragility Fracture Foundation (AFFF) is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the care and outcomes of individuals with fragility fractures in Australia. A fragility fracture is a type of bone fracture that occurs from a minor fall or trauma, often in older people with weakened bones. These fractures can have serious consequences, including loss of mobility, independence, and quality of life.

The AFFF works to raise awareness of fragility fractures and the importance of prevention, early diagnosis, and timely treatment. We also support research and education to advance the understanding and management of fragility fractures in Australia. Our vision is to reduce the burden of fragility fractures and improve the lives of those affected by them.

The Australian component of the Australian & New Zealand Fragility Fracture Registry (ANZFFR) is a project of the AFFF, which will be referred to as the Australian Fragility Fracture Registry. The Australian Fragility Fracture Registry is supported by an unrestricted grant from Amgen Australia.

To date, we have completed a facility level survey of secondary fracture facilities in Australia, locked in the minimum data set for the patient-level registry, received ethics approval to collect patient specific data and started collecting patient data at Concord Hospital.
