Orthogeriatric: Acute Hip Fracture Management model of care
The Orthogeriatric: Acute Hip Fracture Management model of care delivers consistent high-quality, patient-centred, evidence-based care to all orthogeriatric patients who are diagnosed with a hip fracture.
The model of care aims to ensure patients receive consistent, quality care from admission through to discharge. Patients will also be provided with timely and effective pain management, appropriate time to theatre and day one mobilisation by a physiotherapist. This will provide the best possible opportunity for the patient to return to their pre-fracture function and mobility.
