Description:Help on this term

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care has produced the Hip fracture care clinical care standard indicators to assist with local implementation of the Hip fracture care clinical care standard (ACSQHC 2015). The Hip fracture care clinical care standard aims to ensure that patients with a hip fracture receive optimal treatment from presentation to hospital to the completion of their treatment in hospital. This includes timely assessment and management of a hip fracture, timely surgery if indicated, and the early initiation of a tailored care plan aimed at restoring movement and function and minimising the risk of another fracture. Clinicians and health services can use the Hip fracture care clinical care standard and indicators to support the delivery of high quality care.

The Hip fracture care clinical care standard indicators contains indicators against each of the quality statements in the Standard: care at presentation, pain management, orthogeriatric model of care, timing of surgery, mobilisation and weight-bearing, minimising the risk of another fracture, transition from hospital care.

Collection and usage attributes

National reporting arrangement:Help on this term

The Indicator specification: hip fracture care clinical care standard has been developed to assist with local implementation of the Hip fracture care clinical care standard (ACSQHC 2015). The indicators are intended for local use by hospitals and Local Hospital Networks (LHNs). There are no benchmarks set for any of the indicators in the set.

Hospitals using Hip fracture care clinical care standard indicators can compare their results against themselves during a previous period, amongst other hospitals in the LHN, or other external hospitals with whom they have made such arrangements. Hospitals may also look to the literature for the experiences of other hospitals.

Comments:Help on this term

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care has produced the Hip fracture care clinical care standard (ACSQHC 2015) to support the delivery of appropriate care for a defined condition and is based on the best evidence available at the time of development. Health care professionals are advised to use clinical discretion and consideration of the circumstances of the individual patient, in consultation with the patient and/or their carer or guardian when applying information contained within the Clinical care standard. Consumers should use the information in the Clinical care standard as a guide to inform discussions with their health care professional about the applicability of the Clinical care standard to their individual condition.
