Welcome to the QFracture®-2013 risk calculator
Welcome to the QFracture®-2013 Web Calculator. You can use this calculator to work out your risk of developing any osteoporotic (i.e. hip, wrist, shoulder or spine) fracture or hip fracture alone by answering some simple questions.
The QFracture®-2013 algorithms have been developed by Julia Hippisley-Cox and Carol Coupland and are based on routinely collected data from many thousands of GPs across the country who have freely contributed data to the QResearch database for medical research.
QFracture®-2013 has been developed for the UK population, and is intended for use in the UK. All medical decisions need to be taken by a patient in consultation with their doctor. The authors and the sponsors accept no responsibility for clinical use or misuse of this score.
The science underpinning the latest QFracture® equations was published in the BMJ online at http://www.bmj.com on the 22nd May 2012. This site implements the annual update, QFracture-2013.
