This important and timely conference will focus on improving care for hip fracture patients – learning from the NHFD findings and October 2021 report, and improving progress against the NICE quality standard for hip fracture. Through national updates and practical cases studies the conference will highlight best practice in hip fracture care, improving the care pathway and outcomes. The conference will focus on improving assessment, minimised delays to theatre, improving the pathway from falls to theatre changing the role of the emergency department, ensuring hip fracture patients are prioritised for surgery, overcoming contra indications, improving the anaesthetic and surgical pathway, and ensuring prompt mobilisation after surgery. There is a focus on managing Hip Fracture in Covid positive patients. The October 2021 NHFD report found that 30-day mortality was three times higher for patients with COVID-19 than seen in those without the infection. There is also a focus on secondary hip fracture prevention.

Hip fractures represent a global public health challenge, and the impact of COVID-19 is likely to endure in all healthcare systems for the foreseeable future.” 

National Hip Fracture Database Report, October 2021

“COVID-19 has had notable effects on the hip fracture care service: hip fracture rates increased significantly... Elderly patients with hip fractures are a particularly vulnerable group during the pandemic… Despite national lockdown and traffic restrictions, the number of older patients with hip fractures significantly increased”
