Hip fracture care standard

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care published the Hip Fracture Care Clinical Care Standard, along with indicator specifications and consumer and clinician fact sheets in September last year. Now they have released Hip Fracture Care – the Case for Improvement, as well as a supporting PowerPoint presentation for clinicians and health services to use. These resources explain what each quality statement means, why it matters, and how use of the clinical care standard could improve patient outcomes.  

This latest document highlights the importance of the Standard, why we need it, and what could be achieved with a more consistent approach to the implementation of best practice.
