Case Study – Conquering distance for timely transfer of hip fracture patients

Geriatrician Dr Hannah Seymour, based at Fiona Stanley Hospital Perth WA, knows better than most that time can be a challenge when treating people who break their hip – especially when facing geographical barriers.

In this case study, Dr Seymour outlines how time to surgery can improve, as recommended in the updated Hip Fracture Clinical Care Standard, released on 11 September 2023.

Also read about Esperance patient Jill Bower, who was transferred to Perth for hip fracture surgery, and has had a good recovery.
