Hip Fracture Care Clinical Care Standard

The binational Hip Fracture Care Clinical Care Standard and accompanying resources were launched in September 2016, and 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. This Clinical Care Standard was developed by The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care in collaboration with consumers, clinicians, researchers and health organisations.



These resources can be used to promote and explain what the Hip Fracture Care Clinical Care Standard means to health services, clinicians, patients and their carers.

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.
