Hip Fracture Rehab Guidelines

The RCA's best practice guidance for rehabilitative care for patients following hip fracture provides a basis for informing and improving quality care to support better patient outcomes, increased efficiencies and bundled care. RCA tools and resources support implementation of the best practices at the system and organization level.

Both documents should be consulted when providing best practice care to older adults with hip fracture. Together, they provide rehabilitative care best practices for all older adults with frailty, including those with hip fracture, and additional recommendations specific to hip fracture.
