Hip Fracture Recovery Research

Vision

Engage a global network of key stakeholders committed to working collaboratively to advance knowledge of hip fracture recovery and ultimately improve patient outcomes

Aims

Create a network of researchers, clinicians, patients, carers, and policymakers interested in multidisciplinary hip fracture recovery research. More specifically, to provide opportunities for the network to:

  1. Disseminate new research findings on hip fracture recovery research
  2. Identify opportunities for global collaboration on hip fracture recovery research
  3. Access training opportunities

The activities and accomplishments in 2022

1. Journal Issue in collaboration with BMJ Quality Open
Clinical researchers from across the globe will be supported by SIG Advisory Board members to publish their quality improvement initiatives as a journal article in a BMJ Quality Open special issue (estimated publication date 2023). The issue will focus on global quality improvement initiatives for older adults with fragility fractures. This initiative will enable shared learning of quality improvement initiatives across the globe.
