Topic Working Group - Hip Fracture Clinical Care Standard
The Commission develops clinical care standards with advice from a multidisciplinary topic working group including clinicians, consumers, and researchers.
The Commission would like to acknowledge the Topic Working Group who advised on the first version of the Standard in 2016, some of whom, with other experts, participated in the review of the Hip Fracture Clinical Care Standard 2023. The Review Working Group can be accessed below.
The role of the Working Group was to:
- Advise the Commission on the scope and key components of care.
- Advise the Commission on the key sources of evidence to inform the revisions.
- Recommend to the Commission strategies to support implementation.
- Actively support raising awareness of the updated Standard.
For those who are consumers, a key role is to advise the Commission on matters relating to their experience - whether as a patient or carer - and provide this perspective during the review of the Hip Fracture Clinical Care Standard.
