Hip Fracture Summit 2024

Fri, 26 Apr 2024

Virtual, Online

Follow the conference on X #HipFracture2024

This important and timely conference will focus on improving care for hip fracture patients – learning from the NHFD findings and September 2023 report, and improving progress against the Key Performance Indicators and 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 improving practice against the Key Performance Indicators, using a Quality Improvement (QI) approach, and managing Hip Fracture in Covid positive patients.

““The most dramatic observation in 2022 was that over 7,000 people had a hip fracture in December, far higher than the average of 5,500 per month in recent years. The 72,160 hip fractures that the NHFD recorded in 2022 contrast with totals of under 66,000 in 2020 and 2021, and 67,000 prior to the pandemic” ”

““Hip fracture is the commonest reason for an older person to need admission to hospital for emergency surgery.”.......“Patients have the best chance of recovery if they are cared for on a ward where a hip fracture team can work together, rather than separately. “”
