Orthogeriatric Clinical Practice Guide and Organisational Model of Care for patients with a diagnosed hip fracture consultation

The NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) is seeking feedback on the Orthogeriatric Clinical Practice Guide and the Organisational model of care for patients with a diagnosed hip fracture as part of the Hip Fracture Care initiative, Tranche Two Leading Better Value Care (LBVC).

The documents will assist Local Health Districts (LHD) and Specialty Health Networks (SHN) with local implementation of the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care’s (ACSQHC) Hip Fracture Care Clinical Care Standard and the Australian and New Zealand Hip Fracture Registry’s (ANZHFR) Australian and New Zealand Guideline for Hip Fracture Care.

The purpose of the documents is to provide a clear, practical guide to the care of frail older orthopaedic patients, as well as aligning with the Hip Fracture Care Clinical Care Standard. The care a patient receives for a hip fracture should include a shared care approach for improved patient, health service and quality of care outcomes such as hospital length of stay, time to surgery and readmission rates.

Please provide feedback using the form below by COB Friday, 12th of August.

If you have any enquiries or questions please contact Jessica Wragg, Project Officer, Hip Fracture LBVC, at Jessica.Wragg@health.nsw.gov.au or aci-lbvc-hipfracturecare@health.nsw.gov.au.

This form is accessible via distributed link.
