Publication date: April 2019Source: Best Practice &Research Clinical Rheumatology, Volume 33, Issue 2Author(s): Anette Hylen Ranhoff, Ingvild Saltvedt, Frede Frihagen, Johan Raeder, Sameer Maini, Olav SletvoldAbstractHip fractures are common among older people, and the prognosis is serious in terms of mobility, independence in daily life activities, and cognition, with 42% of patients never achieving the same function as before the fracture. Norway has the highest incidence of hip fractures, and the important tasks are to improve patient care and prevent new fractures.The aim was to develop Norwegian Guidelines for Interdisciplinary Care for Hip Fractures, which included models of care, organization, and clinical issues. These guidelines were based on review of the literature, including existing guidelines such as the NICE guidelines, as well as clinical experience of the members of the group, where consensus was reached after discussions. The guidelines focus on interdisciplinary patient management through a clinical pathway from admission to discharge. Here, we will present a shortened and internationally adapted version of these guidelines, which has newly been released.
