This important and timely conference will focus on improving care for hip fracture patients – learning from the NHFD findings and improving progress against the NICE quality standard for hip fracture. Through national updates and practical case 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. The conference will also look at how we can reduce confusion and delirium following hip fracture surgery as highlighted by the recent NHFD Report:

“It is too early to examine the impact of COVID-19 in any detail, but it will certainly be considerable. In 2019, just 7.1% of people died in hospital after a hip fracture, but in March 2020 this rose to around 30% for people who already had COVID-19 when they were admitted and for people who developed the infection in hospital.”

National Hip Fracture Database Report, January 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”
