  • using the NHFD as a driver for quality improvement
  • using the live data on the NHFD website to inform governance meetings and local improvement work
  • how do you convince your board to give the highest priority to hip fracture patients?
  • ensuring the sicker, older, frailer patients are at the top of the surgical list
  • how we have reduced delays in surgical operations as a result of avoidable inefficiencies in preoperative planning or in the organisation of theatre lists
  • using audit data to monitor care and prompt change
  • using RCA to investigate and understand causes of breaches
  • teamwork and implementation; respond quickly to problems as they arise
  • quality improvement and evaluating the impact of service change

Will provided the conferences with an update from the national hip fracture database “70,000 hip fractures per year”

Will then went through some challenges and opportunities.

Challenges included “Data burden and duplication” and £too much other stuff to do”

Opportunities included there are multiple domains, areas for you to be able to important and “MDT working is the future”
