Hip Fracture Care Clinical Care Standard

The updated binational Hip Fracture Care Clinical Care Standard and accompanying resources were launched in September 2023 at the ANZHFR Hip Fest. They provide guidance to consumers, clinicians and health services. These standards aim to support the delivery of appropriate clinical care, reduce unwarranted variation in care and promote shared decision-making between patients, carers and clinicians.

ANZ Guideline for Hip Fracture Care

The Australian and New Zealand Guideline for Hip Fracture Care is designed to help professionals providing care for people with a hip fracture to deliver consistent, effective and efficient care. Every person with a hip fracture should be given the best possible chance of making a meaningful recovery from a significant injury and strategies should be put in place to reduce the occurrence of future falls and fractures. The recommendations reflect the journey of a person with a hip fracture and take into account their perspective, as well as the perspective of their family and carers.

My Hip Fracture Guide: Information and Individual Care Plan

The newly updated Hip Fracture Care Guide is for patients and families when a person is admitted to hospital with a broken hip. It provides important information about what to expect while in hospital and when starting recovery.

It includes room for the older person and the care team to write down a care plan for recovery after discharge from hospital. The revised booklet also includes the ANZHFR Patient Information Pamphlet and an opportunity for patients and carers to feedback about their experience of hip fracture care.
