Hip Fest 2022

Hip Fest 2022

The Australian & New Zealand Hip Fracture Registry are pleased to announce a return to a face to face Binational Hip Fest in 2022.

In partnership with the Fragility Fracture Network, the ANZHFR invites you to Hip Fest 2022, Joined at the Hip.

The ANZHFR is a bi-national audit of hip fracture care and secondary fracture prevention in Australia and New Zealand. Its objective is to use data to improve hip fracture care across both countries.

The Festival will offer a forum to explore multidisciplinary teamwork in hip fracture care and highlight examples of best practice. Learn about the Registry and the My Hip/ My Voice consumer project. We are also excited to announce the winners of the Golden Hip Award.

Join us after the Hip Fest for networking drinks and canapes. Please indicate if you will attend this optional event in the registration form.
