Description:Help on this term

Evidence of local arrangements for the development of an individualised care plan for hip fracture patients prior to the patient's separation from hospital.

Rationale:Help on this term

A range of interventions has been shown to improve outcomes for hip fracture patients. These include medication review, secondary fracture prevention, treatment/management of co-morbidities, addressing mental health/ cognitive needs (prevention/ management of delirium in particular), environmental modifications, and linkage into cultural services, primary care, community support services and carer support services (ACSQHC 2009).

Involvement of patients and carers in the development of the individualised care plan aligns with the principles of consumer-centred care (ACSQHC 2012).

Collection and usage attributes

Computation description:Help on this term

Documented local arrangements for patients with a hip fracture to have an individualised care plan developed prior to the patient's separation from hospital, and provisions to make this available to them (and/or their carer), and to their general practitioner and other ongoing clinical care provider within 48 hours of the patient leaving hospital.

The care plan should describe the care received by the patient during their hospital stay and ongoing care and goals of care. The plan must include a summary of any changes to medicines, any new medicines, and equipment and contact details for rehabilitation services they may require. It should also describe mobilisation activities, wound care and function post surgery, and include information and recommendations for secondary fracture prevention.
