BOAST - Patients Sustaining a Fragility Hip Fracture

01 Jan 2012


Over 70,000 hip fractures occur annually in the UK. The total cost of care is over £2 billion with 10% mortality at 30 days and up to 30% mortality at one year. Their care is dependent on close multidisciplinary relationships between many specialties due to the complex nature of these patients, both in terms of their medical co-morbidities and their ability to rehabilitate.
