Resources for patients and families

The My Hip My Voice project has developed resources for patients, families and friends.

These resources have been developed to help you understand what to expect when you or a family member have been admitted to hospital with a broken hip. 

They were developed from conversations with people who have lived experience of a broken hip, either as a patient or a family member. 

Play the video below to hear more about how the resources were developed.

You can access the resources as you scroll down the page.

Resource 1: Hip Fracture Care Guide

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.

You can download the updated Hip Fracture Care Guide in 15 languages. Please note, printed copies are not available for purchase.

Version 1 of the Hip Fracture Care Guide is also available in two additional languages:


New Zealand

Recovering From a Hip Fracture: Pikinga ora i tētahi whainga hope is available for download for people from New Zealand and their families. The Aotearoa New Zealand booklet was developed by people who have experienced a hip fracture using a co-design approach and included frontline staff who work in this clinical area. The purpose is to provide consumers and their whānau with useful information to help during their recovery.


te reo Māori

The booklet is also available on the Te Tāhū Hauora Health Quality & Safety Commission website in A4 and A5 formats, either as web PDFs or print PDFs. The web files are for in-house general printing or viewing onscreen, and the print PDFs are for professional printing.


Resource 2: Carer Resources

Resource 3: The Dashboard

The Dashboard uses data from the ANZHFR to show how hospitals care for Australians with a hip fracture. The Dashboard follows Margaret from injury to leaving hospital.

We recognise and acknowledge people with a lived experience of hip fracture - patients, their families, and carers.

Their voices are powerful. Their contribution is vital to the work of improving health care.
