Mentorship

IOF has developed a Mentorship programme to enable FLS implementation worldwide. To achieve this goal, IOF wants to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and skills by connecting experienced FLS champions with any institutions willing to establish a new FLS.

 

The Mentorship programme includes two aspects:

1. ON SITE TRAINING DAY

This activity allows an FLS candidate (mentee) to benefit from a “one-day visit” at the FLS champion’s institution (mentor). Material and certificate will be provided. IOF will cover the travel cost for the FLS candidate. A limited number of on-site training days will be available each year. If you want to establish/improve your FLS, please fill in the application form and send it to Masaki at capturethefracture@iofbonehealth.org

2. CTF FLS WORKSHOP

This workshop aims to teach the basic steps on FLS implementation to a group of 15-20 FLS candidates (mentees) within the same country. In close collaboration with a national society, the CTF FLS workshop will be customized to the health system of the country by including local experts within the speaker panel. Course materials and certificates of attendance will be provided to the mentees. If you are a National Society and want to organize a CTF FLS workshop, please contact Masaki at capturethefracture@iofbonehealth.org

A limited number of workshops and on-site training days

will be available each year.
