The National Action Plan for Bone Health: Recommendations from the Summit for a National Action Plan for Bone Health provides an action plan and agenda to advance bone health promotion and disease prevention for the nation. It is a direct result of the Summit for a National Action Plan for Bone Health, which convened more than 150 stakeholders who share concern for America's bone health in June 2008 in Washington, D.C.
The action plan is structured around four priority areas: developing a bone health alliance; promoting bone health and disease prevention; improving diagnosis and treatment; and enhancing research, surveillance and evaluation. The report outlines recommended actions, responsibilities, and short-term and long-term timelines for priorities and programs for health professionals, health systems and population-based approaches to promote bone health.
The National Coalition for Osteoporosis and Related Bone Diseases is responsible for this report.
