Hip Fracture Day 2019

The BOA is pleased to hold the annual Hip Fracture Care Day. The BOA has been coordinating multidisciplinary reviews of hip fracture care in hospitals for 5 years and the purpose of the day in previous years has been to assess the impact of the process, discuss common themes identified as areas for improvement and to look at the potential direction reviews will take in the future.
