The Australia and New Zealand Hip Fracture Registry (ANZHFR) is seeking Consumer Representatives to fill a variety of roles

The Australia and New Zealand Hip Fracture Registry (ANZHFR) is an organisation that collects information about hip fracture care in Australia and New Zealand. It uses the information to improve the hospital care for people who break their hip.

The ANZHFR looks at what happens to these people during their time in the hospital and after they go home.

The ANZHFR wants to help older people who break their hip to get better more quickly, with fewer problems and to not have another broken bone.
