Through national updates and practical case studies the conference will highlight best practice in hip fracture care, improving the care pathway and outcomes. The conference will focus on improving assessment, minimised delays to theatre, improving the pathway from falls to theatre changing the role of the emergency department, ensuring hip fracture patients are prioritised for surgery, overcoming contra indications, improving the anaesthetic and surgical pathway, and ensuring prompt mobilisation after surgery. The conference will also look at how we can reduce confusion and delirium following hip fracture surgery as highlighted by the recent NHFD Report; “Prevention, recognitionand management of delirium is everyone’s responsibility. Delirium commonly compromises patient experience and recovery,screening for delirium should be a priority in the first days after surgery”
