Information for Healthcare Services - Hip Fracture Clinical Care Standard
Information for healthcare services to guide practice and monitor improvement using the clinical care standard, and resources to support implementation.
What do healthcare services need to know?
The Hip Fracture Clinical Care Standard contains seven quality statements describing the care that should be offered to patients with a suspected hip fracture from presentation to hospital through to completion of treatment in hospital.
This Standard applies to care provided in all hospital settings, including public and private hospitals and subacute facilities.
A set of indicators is provided to support healthcare services to monitor how well they are implementing the care recommended in this clinical care standard and to support local quality improvement activities.
What the quality statements mean for health service organisations
A communications kit has been developed to support the launch of the Standard. Show your support by downloading and sharing the content on your website, social networks or within your healthcare service.
