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.
The Australian Hip Fracture Registry is now live. You can only access the site if you have completed all your ethics protocols. There is a Demonstration version available that you can use in the meantime to get a feel for the registry. This is very useful if you are already collecting data as it shows you what data we are expecting and allows you to see the format for uploading that data.
You can also check out the Data Dictionary to find out the exact definition of each of the data points.
The live website is available here.
The website is designed to serve as a tool to share resources from the latest findings in the international literature, to regular newsletters as well as local protocols and pathways for care. We encourage people to share their resources and also to contribute to the work of this collaboration.
This website is supported by grants from The Bupa Health Foundation (Australia) and Health Quality & Safety Commission New Zealand.
