Meeting the NICE Quality Standard and Learning from the NHFD Findings
Thursday 1st May 2014, London
In spite of the progressive improvements that the National Hip Fracture Database has documented in the 2013 and previous reports, there remains considerable variation in the care being offered in different hospitals. There is also considerable variation in the length of time that patients spend in hospital recovering from hip fracture. This conference focuses on meeting the NICE Quality Standard for Hip Fracture and learning from the findings of the 2013 National Hip Fracture Database Report and the 2014 Sprint Audits. Case study sessions will focus on improving patient care and outcomes for hip fracture.
