Abstract

The geriatrician and orthopedic surgeon's roles are well defined in hip fracture management, yet other health-care providers contribute significantly toward care, as well as maximizing rehabilitation potential and decreasing readmissions. We examine evidence concerning pre-hospital care, pain management, multidisciplinary rehabilitation and secondary prevention strategies.
